asked on

tiny form factor PC with RAID1

I'm looking for tiny form factor PC (of core i5 or i7)
that could house RAID1 / mirror such one in the
following:

Pls let me know what are several comparable products
around.  For medium critical use where space is a
constraint & there's only normal office air-conditioning
(not datacentre type of air-conditioning)

Pls recommend only 64-bit models that could run Win 7 x64 Enterprise
(as we may want to boost the RAM up to 16GB) with 500GB x2 (for RAID1)
with gigabit NIC

Don't quite understand dlethe's suggestion:
Does your suggestion mean with a single HDD (or SSD),
we can fake a RAID1 mirror by using a software?
Can elaborate how this is done?

I'm thinking of SSD as SSD has much higher MTBF than
even the best HDDs (Amazon publishes some of it as
having MTBF of above 100 years)

Is there any other SFF PCs that's smaller than the following
Dimensions:
• 13.35"W x 15.0"D x 3.93"H
• 339mm W x 381.1mm D x 99.7mm H


For the Xi3 units at Interop, could they support SSD?

Just to clarify a bit further on the fake RAID1:
can a single HDD act like it's a dual HDD (perhaps dual partition)
using software RAID?  Or it still has to be two physical HDDs but
on a single controller?

Coming to SSD, can I say that generally SSD lasts a lot longer than
HDD due to absence of mechanical parts & (ie no disk drive head
crash) but SSD may still fail due to dust, static, humidity?  If SSD
were to fail, it would fail gradually (sector by sector, bit by bit),
 not like HDD sudden 'crash'?
