I have to build a new DB box. I want to run raid 5 on this box. All the other servers i have i have scsi with raid 5 and those really expensive fast scsi drives. Well i have had more failures in a 2 yr time , that i ever had with all my ide drives.
So i am thinking of building this box with a ide raid.
(**NOTE** i am not a hardware guy, i have to be cause i own a small little business )
1) can i get raid 5 controllers for ide drives.
2) what would be the disadvantages?
Thanks for any help
