    To answer some basic questions:

    What do I want to run?
    • Linux (Debian)
    • ZFS
    • Snapraid
    What do I want to connect?
    • Server case with 4x SFF-8087 for 16 hotswap bays
    • 2 Internal SSDs
    • Maybe a DVD/Blueray drive or something else in the 5.25" bay of the case
    What do I already have?
    • Mainboard (Supermicro X11SSH-F) with 8x SATA3
    • 2 different LSI2008 controller flashed to IT mode (H310 and M1015)
    • an Intel RES2VS240 SAS expander
    Why do I want something else?
    There is a bug (probably in the MPT3SAS driver in Linux) when waking up disks from standby/sleep:
    Why do I want my disks to go to sleep?
    • This is my server at home
    • The spinnig disks are only used maybe 1-2h a day (main system is on the SSD(s))
    • It's in my office, so I want to reduce noise, heat and power usage as much as possible
