RAID 0 & RAID 1 on same system? NOT RAID 0+1

With a motherboard RAID controller, is it possible to RAID0 2 hard drives for speed and then RAID1 2 data hard drives for backup purposes?

I want RAID0 app drives and RAID1 data drives.

I suspect it is possible, but maybe only with a second RAID controller.

Anyone done this or know if this is possible?

Thanks!

If your RAID controller has 4 drives associated with it, then yes, you can have one 2 drive array on RAID0 and another 2 drive array in RAID1 on the same controller...unless there is something funky with the RAID controller, there's no reason why it can't be done.

There's certainly one way to find out for sure...

Good luck!

What mobo do you have and what raid controller is on it? Most lower end boards only have support single channel raid for up to four devices. What you need to look for is if your controller support duel channel.
