3ware 9550SX Versus Faulty Drive

One of the drives in Odysseus has failed. I have got a replacement today. While installing the new drive, I have used the 3ware utility tw_cli to handle the configuration changes. I was surprised how well designed the 3ware controller software was.

... and some other things as well. This controller also fully supports physical hotplug and hotremove (but again, my chassis does not have the hotplug SATA power connectors). I think with this controller, the features available to the system administrator are as good as the ones of the high-end arrays (or maybe better, see the point about SMART). Good work, 3ware!
