Re: PowerEdge T430 with PERC RAID Controller

I had very good experiences with the PowerEdge PERC RAID controllers in Linux. Normally the kernel supports the controller and the volumes are transparently available to the system. The management tools for re-configuring the RAID - well, it depends. Dell used to have some user-space tools for linux, but you can always reconfigure the RAID via the BIOS/Firmware setup.
If a Dell server supports linux, (Red Hat, SUSE, Ubuntu), then it's a safe bet that Devuan will work as well.
Ask a Dell representative before you buy and ask for a assurance. Good luck, André
