best RAID configuration for 3D Rendering Tags: NAS / RAID Rendering 3D Storage Last response: November 14, 2007 5:21 PM in Storage Share jfrankel43 November 14, 2007 4:42:36 PM I'm setting up a RAID on a NAS that'll be used for 3D rendering with applications like Maya and mental ray. I am debating between a RAID 10, a RAID 5, or just saving some cash and going with a RAID 1. I've seen mentions on this board have mentioned that RAID 5 isn't good for heavy workloads with lots of transactions... would RAID 5 be a mistake for 3D rendering? thanks Josh More about : raid configuration rendering fantastapotamus November 14, 2007 5:19:59 PM Rendering is usually compute bound. In other words get the fastest cpu you can afford and don't worry about raid performance (except for backup). If you are editing video however a fast raid array can be important. jfrankel43 November 14, 2007 5:21:49 PM that makes sense. thanks. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
