RAID no brainer Tags: NAS / RAID Hard Drives Storage Last response: November 16, 2009 12:03 PM in Storage Share tomfan November 16, 2009 3:10:42 AM I was wondering... 1. Would it be possible to build on board RAID onto a Std HDD? 2. If so, could it be possible to use this RAID to strip or mirror (not much point if the whole disk fails) platters inside a HDD. Surely this would be useful from a performance point of view.

Data is spread across multiple platters. sub mesa a c 127 G Storage November 16, 2009 12:03:02 PM Striping on partitions of a single disk you mean? Yeah it'll be one big performance gangbang; seeking for every 128KiB (stripesize). Try it and you'll be amazed how slow HDDs really are. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
