Silicon Graphics provides software striping of SCSI disks; thus your
host can effectively act as a RAID controller, providing flexibility
and probably reduced price, possibly with a performance penalty in the
form of increased CPU overhead. However, it probably means that it can
spread the I/O load over multiple I/O controllers.

RAID0 is in late beta under Linux. (evesg@etlcom3.etl.go.jp (Gjoen
Stein), 95/10/6)

sdsadmin on the HP 7xx line does raid 0 striping and works well.
this is also apparently possible on the 8xx machines using LVM.
sdsadmin is due to disappear with hpux 10, replaced by LVM.

I believe the Advanced FS on Alphas can also do raid 0.

ATTO Technology	has ExpressStripe, which does software striping on a
