HI Eugen, Whether it's compatible entirely depends on the chipset of the SATA controller.
Basically that card is just a dual port 6gbps PCIe SATA controller with the space to mount one ($149) or two ($299) 2.5inch disks. Sonnet, a mac focused company, offers it as a way to better utilize existing Mac Pros already in the field without an external box. Mac Pros only have 3gbps SATA2 and a 4x3.5inch drive backplane, but nearly all have a free full-length PCIe slot. This product only makes sense if you're trying to run OpenIndiana on a Mac Pro, which in my experience is more trouble than it's worth, but to each their own I guess. If you can confirm the chipset you might get lucky and have it be a supported chip. The big chip is labelled PLX, but I can't read the markings and wasn't aware PLX made any PCIe SATA controllers (PCIe and USB/SATA bridges sure, but not straight controllers) so that may not even be the chip we care about. http://www.profil-marketing.com/uploads/tx_lipresscenter/Sonnet_Tempo_SSD_Pro_01.jpg -Pete On Dec 3, 2012, at 8:32 AM, Eugen Leitl wrote: > > Anyone here using http://www.sonnettech.com/product/tempossd.html > with a zfs-capable OS?
