It really depends on your application.  For a smaller personal server
or desktop, you could get something like this:


and just use linux software raid.

Or if you want SATA II and NCQ, you could get this and use Linux software RAID


Really, for a lot of applications, I have found this type of solution
(inexpensive SATA card or even onboard SATA ports and Linux Software
RAID) to be really reliable, easy to manage and quick.

If you have a higher end type of application, then most 3ware/LSI
cards will work fine, especially since hardware raid will generaly
abstract things away and just present the array to the Linux box as
one disk.  The issue there comes into what types of tools/reporting is
available from Linux to check on the array.  Again, most major brands
have some pretty good options.  I have used several nice nagios
plugins for 3ware cards and Areca cards.

Hope this helps,
