I have a HP Microserver N54l and it will be used as a file server.
I have 2 WD Velociraptor disks that I want to Mirror (Raid1)
OS is MS Server 2012.
My question is, what is better:
- using the onboard Software Raid AMD SB8 Raid Controller
- formating the disks as dynamic volumes andf creating the Raid1 in Windows?
The main aspect is security and stability, not speed.
