HAMMER best practices?

From: Dave Hayes <dave@xxxxxxxxxxx>

Greetings all.

I'm wondering what the best practice is for setting up a network mass 
storage box using HAMMER, assuming you can start from scratch and 
completely control every aspect of the hardware?

Specifically (but general ideas are also welcome), I've used the 3ware 
(is it LSI now?) hardware RAID controllers for some time, but is 
hardware RAID necessary with HAMMER's ability to mirror? Would it be 
better to just get a 4 port SATA controller and let HAMMER mirror the 
important bits?

Thanks in advance! :D
