In a SCSI Disk Array, can you mix RPM speeds?
Posted on 2004-09-28
They don't make the Barracuda 18 GB, 10,000 RPM SCSI drive anymore, but I have a server with an array of 5 of these drives.
Will I have any problem replacing a failed drive with a larger (say 36 GB) drive that spins at 15,000 RPMs?
I have my own opinion, but I want to toss this out for any possible negative side effects that could occur.
500 points...will do a weighted split up of points if I get more than one good point/objection/concern.
