Solved SSD vs mSata SSD with HDD RAID0 Tags: SSD Configuration Storage NAS / RAID Hard Drives Last response: February 16, 2014 2:29 PM in Storage Share LidCon February 16, 2014 1:17:16 PM I'm trying to determine what storage configuration I want. Would I be better off with an SSD with 2 2 tb HDD's in RAID 0 or an mSata SSD with 2 2 tb HDD's in RAID 0? Also what size SSD or mSata SSD would I need?

Why are you thinking of a RAID setup? And which RAID type? RAID 0. Just to speed things up. Will the SSD act as a cache for the hdds or is that only with mSata? I plan on using the SSD for booting and processing and the HDD's for storage. Reply to LidCon m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !

The HDDs just for stuff where it doesn't really matter. No, the SSD won't be a cache. It would (preferably) be just the boot OS and applications. For most things that will live on the HDDs, speed is not an issue. And RAID 0 brings more complexity and fail potential.
