We are using them at Juniper Networks. We have had very good luck with
them. However we use SCSI disk instead of SATA so I don't know how well
SATA works with FreeBSD 6.x. Our setup is 2 - dual core CPUs, 4 gig of ram,
a pair of Adaptec SCSI RAID controllers. The OS disk is a pair of 72 gig
SCSI mirrored and the other 6 bays have some configuration of SCSI disk in
RAID 10. We use FreeBSD 6.2-RC2 because these motherboards use the Intel
network chips and there was a problem with the em device. The patch to fix
this got committed sometime in late October.
