Data Transfer Rates RAID 5
Savvio 10k.2 (10,000 RPM), RAID 5
The throughput in RAID 5 seems to be limited by the controller, which has to manage the XOR calculation. Yet, performance at 250 MB/s is more than acceptable.
Savvio 10k.2 (10,000 RPM), RAID 5 Degraded
It's important to check the performance when one of the disks is damaged in a so-called degraded array, which means that the system has to recreate parity information on the fly.
Savvio 15k.1 (15,000 RPM), RAID 5
Savvio 15k.1 (15,000 RPM), RAID 5 Degraded
Using a 15k hard drive is practical when one of the RAID 5 array disks is damaged.
