This server is running three different servers two are for public gaming (halo combat evolved each hosting 16 players) and 1 other one for private TeamSpeak (a non - public server 32 people) - thanks More about : raid benefit gaming server Dekasav October 21, 2010 2:19:22 AM It'd likely load new maps quicker, but other than that the performance difference will likely be negligible. Also, RAID 0 doubles your chance of HD failure (if either drive fails, the whole partition fails.) poppasmurf October 21, 2010 2:34:14 AM Hi Dekasav, So than 6 smaller drives in a raid 10 would be the better thought and safer?

And how big of drives do you suggest? And thank you for the input LePhuronn October 21, 2010 12:18:16 PM You won't see any performance benefit from having a RAID - it doesn't matter how quickly anything loads on the, the data rate coming out to your client apps will be slow enough to negate that speed. Having a RAID 1 will give data stored on the server some fault tolerance though. poppasmurf October 29, 2010 4:18:38 AM Best answer selected by Poppasmurf. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
