What is best between : X25-V x2 in Raid 0 vs 1* X25-M Tags: NAS / RAID Storage Last response: April 6, 2010 5:12 PM in Storage Share janfebmar April 5, 2010 2:26:52 PM Anyone have a clue as of whats best of these 2 options, considering they almost cost the same for 2* 40Gb X25-V and 1* 80Gb X25-M?

So the X25-M is like two X25-Vs in RAID0 internally already. But RAIDing X25-V's will give you more read performance; as you can go over the interface 300MB/s cap. buzznut a b G Storage April 5, 2010 5:03:25 PM Did you read Anand's article? http://anandtech.com/show/3618/intel-x25v-in-raid0-fast...

It also depends on the RAID-engine you're using and how you setup the RAID. For example, i think you should get a decent gain on random read which Anand wasn't able to deliver. buzznut a b G Storage April 5, 2010 5:38:06 PM hmm. Well, I know that Anand has done a LOT more research on SSD's than most of us so I trust his wisdom. There are obvious benefits to raiding these drives no matter how you feel about the article. I guess just getting the one drive will eliminate some hassles involved with a raid array, although there may be significant performance gains to be had with raid. janfebmar April 6, 2010 5:12:39 PM Losing TRIM is a blow though Think im going for the X25-M then.
