Advice on RAID setup on: March 21, 2017, 04:42:42 PM
Hi guys,

We having a debate at work as to which RAID is best for our new servers.

Currently we use same spec servers so nothing really changes.

6 x 1TB SSDs in HW RAID 10 with writeback BBU array to host 2 x cPanel VPS servers with around 500 accounts each, litespeed and mariadb.

Now the discussion is do we switch from Raid 10 to RAID 6 with SSDs. The argument we having is that it is practically not noticeable with SSDs as it is already that fast and the extra space and redundancy could help?

For SATA there was obviously a need but SSD still ? Recommendation.

If you are not looking for additional free space, RAID 10 is recommended. If you want more space with 6 x 1 TB SSDs, you can go for RAID 6 array.
