What is fastest hard disk/raid order for programmer?
Posted on 2010-08-23
I got Widows 7 Professional 64-bit installed on raid 0 (2*velociRaptor (10k/rpm)). I also got one velociRaptor for pagefile and temp files. I am a programmer and my programming tools is installed on raid disk. My programs is also compiled to raid disk.
Now I am gonna buy two fast SSD drives and make second raid 0 with them. Can anyone tell me what is fastest solution for these two raids and one temp disk. My main target is to get programs compile time low as possible. All my programs use mysql or mssql with PHP when starting, so is it better install those sql-servers (databases) to another disk than compiled files are?
I think the best solution is keep the windows in old raid (slower) and left faster raid for programming tools and compiled programs. I believe that compilers usually dont use pagefile or temp directories when compile programs, but I dont know that for sure (I mostly programming with Flash Builder 4 (Flex)).
I'm gladly hear any experiences and suggestions of this matter.
