Raid 1 og 5 for best recovery possibilities at HW-crash
Posted on 2012-08-13
I'm not sure if it is best to use Raid 1 or 5 in the following Situation:
When running t.ex. a NAS-server, and the Hardware crashes (not the disks), when running Raid 1 it is possible to mount one of the mirrored disks in any HW that supports the inteface of the disks.
if running Raid 5 it seems to me that it is necessary to mount the disks in similar Hardware for mounting the Raid 5 configured disks, or is there an easy way to get all the data from the Raid 5 disks ?
(Did have the Issue on a older windows-server configured as Raid 5, where I had to buy a similar used server to get the data back).
