A really simple question. I have four disks in a server and would like reasonable performance and redundancy but I'm not too worried about space.
Is RAID5 still considered slow? I figure RAID5 + spare would allow two disks to fail at the same time (live and spare on rebuild) and I still get 50% of space. But is RAID1+spare or RAID1+0 faster/better solution?
