We're using the escolade 7850. Seems OK.
. it appears to be a scsi drive and takes some load off the cpu.
. Some of them have battery backed write through cache.
. You need a spare in case it stuffs up.
. The disks are in a proprietary format.
Modern systems are fast enough that the extra load is not really a problem. If you use software raid you can put the disks on another system, distro etc and hopefully have it come back up.
