Improve rx2620 performance with SAS controller.

Improve rx2620 performance with SAS controller.

Fast question.

I have a rx2620 server, scsi-3 performance is a little poor.

Can I improve it using this external sas controller?

It will possible to attach to it a "shelf" of disk like this?

Re: Improve rx2620 performance with SAS controller.

JBOD (Just a Bunch Of Disks) by themselves will not make much of a change in performance. If you are truly limited in performance by your disks, you need an external array which can combine multiple disks into groups where sequential blocks of data can be interleaved to provide disk transfer speeds much higher than individual disks.
