So Spelic, you're using the 3Ware as a SATA controller, but not a RAID

instead provides better IOPS.
Yep, because I know MD better, I can see the code, it's more flexible
and customizable, can be controlled with scripts more easily... Also
parameters to the underlying drives can be controlled if I use MD, and
it's easier to align filesystem to stripes. Also my time is better spent
learning it as MD won't change the next time I buy a different hw
What would be the advantage of using hardware raid?
