Enterprise SSD or Regular SSD RAID? Tags: SSD Enterprise NAS / RAID Storage Last response: September 12, 2012 4:24 PM in Storage Share DrakeConnar September 12, 2012 2:42:56 PM For the cost, I can buy a couple regular grade SSDs and put them into a RAID 1/10 , or I can buy one Enterprise SSD. For data loss protection for a life-span of 5 years and data hosting for 17 users, which would you choose? I am thinking a Mirror Raid of Cheaper Drives would be better than one Enterprise Drive of the same cost. I have used Enterprise Class HDDs before and they seem to fail just as often as normal drives.

I can buy 4 Intel 120GB SSDs and put them in a RAID 10 for 240GB of useful space and mirroring for $384. Or I can buy two Intel 240GB SSDs and put them in a RAID 1 for 240GB useful space and mirroring for $520. So why wouldn't everyone just do a RAID 10? m 0 l cin19 a c 124 G Storage September 12, 2012 3:22:32 PM Using the HDD for the raid, HDD and SSD will fail.

The solution with 2 drives gives you the advantage of a less complex system, than a RAID 10, but if you have a backup you are safe. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
