    I've been lucky enough to obtain 6x800GB SSD drives which I will be adding to my ESXi home server but I'm a bit lost as to what add on card I should really get so that I can successfully pass through the card to a CentOS host running a BTRFS raid setup (which then hosts an NFS export for further VM hosting).

    Is the often referenced LSI card sufficient? Does it support hot swap? Simple question I believe but I'm very inept when it comes to add on SATA cards :)

    Thanks for any info!
