Happen to know the status of gvinum off the top of your head?
Vinum was fine under 4.x but last I heard gvinum was long way from
ready for prime time but I haven't kept up on this issue.  I prefer a
hw raid solution but also don't want to add another grand to the server

FWIW- I do know that the Intel ROB (raid on board) solutions are
supported.  So it's a drag there are issues on the AMD64 side, wh/is
also Tier 1.

Thanks for your input
