The ASR-3405 proves to the best controller for the RAID0 in the Workstation pattern thanks to the small queue depth and the high percent of writes to be performed. The leader is followed by the ASR-44300 and AAR-1430SA. The AAR-1420SA is slower, and the AAR-2820SA is just hopeless.

The RAID10 graphs are interesting. The AAR-1430SA and ASR-3405 share first place, the former being somewhat better at long queue depths while the latter, at small depths. The ASR-44300 is suddenly slow, although not as slow as the AAR-2820SA.

The ASR-3405 wins the RAID5 test again.

If your workstation needs performance and storage capacity, you can take any controller save for the AAR-2820A, which is too slow with every array type. They are all equal with the RAID0. If you need increased data reliability, you may choose to build a RAID10 on the AAR-1430SA or ASR-3405. If speed is unimportant but you need reliability and capacity, you can use the ASR-3405 to build your RAID10.
