Crashing drives

Nothing to do with cars but I’ve got a failure on one of the drives that this site is on. It’s got 4 x 3TB SAS Western Digital drives hooked up to a Dell H310 PERC PCI controller in a Dell T30 server. So the T30 doesn’t come with a H310, not sure you can get that server with that RAID controller. But the issue here is the drive. I guess you get what you pay for an $50 a drive seemed to cheap to be true. So now I have to figure out what to do with storage.

Maybe I should just get another enclosure for the Synology NAS and support everything through there. Or See if the H310 will accept SATA, I mean I like the thought of SAS drives but let’s face it, they’re hard to find and expensive.
