What does 'semi-hardware' mean? From my job I'm familure with high  
end hardware SCSI RAID solutions like the IBM ServeRAID 6M  
controller. I'm also familiar with Linux software RAID. I've not  
heard the term 'semi-hardware' before and I'm wondering what defines  
a semi-harddware RAID array when compared to a hardware RAID solution.
