I'm thinking about setting up my next computer with RAIDed external storage.
I've looked into the various kinds of RAID and their advantages and disadvantages, so I'm happy about the various consequences of a drive failing.
What I'm unclear on is what happens if the RAID enclosure or controller itself fails somehow. Is it generally just a case of moving those disks to another controller which supports the same RAID? Or is RAID implementation specific, so that one controller's RAID5 might be incompatible with another?
