RAID five with SSD Drive

RickArnold asked
Last Modified: 2016-12-08
I am getting ready to build a Server for a customer, and I cannot find a reliable RAID card, and the Dell build is very costly.  This is a small office with three people and the have about 12 Gigs with of files.  to spend 5,000 on a sever is not responsible.

Has anybody ran a Windows 2012R Server with RAID 5 SSD's?  I think it would be pretty fast, and I think the SSD hardware would get past some parity checks windows does because the SSD would do it internally?

I am right or wrong here. Please help me vet this idea
