But are they right?
LSI has a somewhat biased view. They make RAID stuff for HDDs, and they don't want to lose the business.
Reality is a bit more skewed. with flash for performance, you don't need as much storage on HDD, and you don't need super-fast HDDs either.
That's bad news for LSI, but compounding things is that a few drives are better handled by motherboard drive ports with either a local RoC or just software (Especially as the movement for low-drive-count DAS is to RAID0). So LSI will not be selling a $500 RAID card in many cases.
The good news for LSI is that they are a player in PCIe and SSD, but they don't have dominance like they do in the RAID card space.
Oh, and a minor issue. Most SSD operate faster with motherboard connection than they do through a RAID card.
