External RAID for MAC server

By joeysullivan ·
I have a client that wants to add RAID-5 to a G4 MAC server. We need to go with an external enclosure and want to do SCSI instead of firewire for the added performance. Has anyone seen a product to cover this? Will a standard Adaptec RAID controller work properly in a MAC? I?ve never tried it.

Assuming there is no black box solution, does anyone know where I can order external RAID enclosures with power supplies, SCSI external connection to internal connection adapter, etc?

Thanks forthe help.

We use a Micronet Genesis One RAID tower(RAID-5), 500 GB (external, Ultra3 SCSI). It works great. However, I did have some issues with the Adaptec SCSI controller. The one supplied by Micronet worked like a charm (ATTO controller). The tower works well under both ASIP 6.x and OSX server.

Looking for something <$3000 range, 100-150GB.

Try a self-contained raid package from Pro Max. This particular one is 160GB for $1,599.

They've been serving the Mac community for as long as I can remember and sell great products. They "specialize"in the video professional sector (one of the most throughput-demanding applications) which means the drives are the highest performance possible.

Hope this helps!
