 How GNU/Linux and Serial ATA RAID teamed up

"Recently Mailroute, a company that provides virus and spam filtering for businesses, switched its GNU/Linux-based servers from SCSI to Serial ATA disks and saved itself a lot of money. The switchover wouldn't have been possible without Broadcom's new SATA RAID (Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks) controller, the RAIDCore BC4852. While the product was in development, RAIDCore was an independent company working with Mailroute as it developed a GNU/Linux product. When chipmaker Broadcom acquired RAIDCore earlier this year, there were some concerns that Linux support would get lost in the shuffle."
