Adaptec controllers have, for quite some time now, had the ability to power manage the hard drives attached to the controller. It’s a free feature that watches the data throughput to the drives, and can be set to spin the drives down when they are not used.
So … who is using it?
It’s one of those features that we have on our card that people say they need, but I wonder exactly how many of our customers actually turn this feature on?
Do you really need it or use it? Send me some feedback.
