    I've filled up my motherboards 8 sata slots and now I'm looking for an HBA to get 8 more. Alas, I've only got a pcie 3.0 x8 physical with x4 electrical. I'm planning to expand my zfs pool and now I'm wondering if there are any serious bottlenecks having only 4 lanes would entail. It seems as...

    Open Hardware for PCIE fabric

    I have been running Mellanox QDR Infiniband primarily due to the magnitude of difference in latency using RDMA and its use via SRIOV in containers and VMs. Unfortunately Infiniband in the industry is almost entirely proprietary and PCIE fabrics have been a promising future for years now without...

    WTB - Sonnet Allegro Pro USB3 Pcie card

    Having a hard time tracking this one down at a decent price as it is discontinued. If any VM server builders out there are getting rid of one, let me know. It's a multi-controller USB card that works really well for VMs.

    HGST Virident FlashMAX 2 550GB $145 or BO

    Looks pretty good, although no personal experience with any PCIe based SSDs. Seems to have pretty good read IOPS though. HGST Virident FlashMAX 2 550GB SSD Flash PCIe Enterprise Drive - App Accelerator Update: the spec for this seems much better than the Toshiba HK3E2 Series i i bought recently.

    WTB Low profile bracket for LSI9206-16e

    As stated in title, I'm looking for a low-profile bracket (and just the bracket, since I already have the card) for an LSI9206-16e (LSI9202-16e brackets should also work). Shipping to Aus should be cheap, since it's just the bracket.
