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? | Report abuse cin19 September 12, 2012 3:22:32 PM Using the HDD for the raid, HDD and SSD will fail. Like all the companies you have to do the backup of the server in everyday. | Report abuse mad-max79 September 12, 2012 4:24:33 PM If your data is important you should create a RAID with all kind of drives and perform daily backups. 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. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>Enterprise SSD or Regular SSD RAID?> Related ressources: ForumEnterprise drives vs High end consumer drives for home Raid 6 ForumShould I use mobo's RAID or hardware RAID for RAID 0 on SSD boot drive ForumSSD x 1 + software RAID 1 with 2 x 500gb hardware RAID 1 Forum2 x SSD in ( R)AID 0 or Not?
