Different types of RAID and RAID levels

edited February 2019 in General

One of the challenging tasks of every system administrator is to strike a balance between reliability and performance when choosing a dedicated server. Some might say choosing a rite Redundant Array of Independent Disks (RAID) option and the level is critical, but what is RAID and why is it so important?

    If you believe in Raid, you believe in the wrong god.
    Kneel down, you disbelieving.

    Backup is the only religion, nothing else.

    Yeah, definitely inaccurate. I thought it was funny the part where it says RAID-10 has 1 disk redundancy. And that RAID-1's read speed is "fast".

    Well you're absolutely right, if you are relying on it as a "backup". RAID definitely has it's advantages for a high-availability, and large storage environment though.

    Infidel, you chose the wrong religion.
    Now, leave this thread.

    Backup over everything, amen.

    Opium Backup is the new religion of the people.

    I remember, back in the day, when it was "Inexpensive" discs i.e. if a disc bust, throw it away/hammer it and pop in another.

    EDIT2:
    5 x 30MB (thereabouts) discs on a hotswap backplane; enclosed by a case that tripped the power (microswitch) when removed. I kid you not. Allegedly you could lose 2 discs and still rebuild the array - I never tested that. ;)

    True.
    Should be RAED by now.

    Raid 1's read speed IS fast, near raid 0 performance if your implementation/card isn't trash

  • @doghouch we seem to have an SEO spammer or this is a very odd way to try and get a provider tag.

    (I don't know.)

    On a charitable interpretation, one could put this thread in the category Tutorials. See my comment below.

    Less charitably, the OP is trying to draw attention to their services without bothering to get a provider tag.

    Okay, I'm convinced, I was too charitable! Best to ban the OP. (Short of a ban, a severe warning.)
