Which way to setup RAID?
Posted on 2006-06-17
I'm looking at setting up a RAID 0 configuration, after my overly expensive idea of an SSD fell through the floor. What I'm after is:
A - 1 HDD in the PC (already have the HDD)
B - 4 external HDD in RAID 10 config (I wouldn't need more than 100GB)
C - 8 external HDD in RAID 0 config (I wouldn't need more than 100GB either)
A is just a general data drive. B is for more important data and C is for the OS etc, so C should be bootable, although I'm not too keen on having to mess about with drivers when doing RAID. So maybe an external RAID solution instead? ... I know that I need two RAID controller cards for B and C, but I don't know from here on. My very top limit is £1,000. Can anybody suggest what I do now?
