Installing SSD's in a D-LINK DNS-343?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Looking to get this NAS device for my office. Going to run RAID 5, with 4 64 gig SSD's. Does this device support GC/TRIM under this device?

Sorry,

Why are you going to use SSD's for a RAID5 array, TRIM won't work anyway on that just to clairfy. But RAID5 is normally used for reduancy and, well, SSD's just seem a little overkill.

Also, I doubt your network will actually run quick enough to utilise the performance of the SSD.

No it's not, that's not a office solution... Have you had a look for something that is actually an SMB solution?

EDIT - STUPID GOOGLE AUTOCOMPLETE!!!

Got the right equipement now. Still not suitable for 30 people using it... 5 or 10 yeah but not 30.

You seriously want to invest in a suitable solution. I.E a file server

It's a NAS.... the network performance will probably limit the benefits of a SSD.

What kind of office and what is the use?

A file server with a HDD RAID with a SSD cache might be better depending in requirements.

I don't want that... This fits the bill perfectly.

Can you answer the question, please?

All I want to know if the device handles GC / TRIM under linux...

Also the GB/$ you'll be spending is shocking.

When also, you'll fill up that sort of space quickly. You really want to consider a half decent computer with something like 4 1TB drives in RAID53 and a hot spare. I mean, 30 people. Dude someone could walk in and pick up your storage solution and walk out without anyone knowing... lol.

EDIT-

No it doesn't and it's a stupid idea. You're not really listening and you're going to end up spending miles too much money on a crappy solution that you'll replace in 6 months.

Its not a crappy solution and we are not going to fill it up. We do not need 4 1 TB drives in RAID 5, its a waste of space. We have been in business for 30 years and we only have used about 24 gig. Having 3TB of usable space is a waste. having four 64gig SSD's fits the bill, perfectly! I was looking for longevity for the NAS. SSD's have a much less failure rate than mechanical drives do... You should not comment on how much money I want to spend on a solution. If this is what I want to do, then so be it.. There is no need to get confrontational about my idea...

Buffalo does not think its a stupid idea!

What's your network infrastructure?

Software RAID5 + network will most likely kill most of the performance gain for SSDs. Also, no TRIM on array member disks.

If you only need 24GB.... why would you go RAID5 in the first place? RAID1 with 60GB would be safer.

What kind of data do you plan to store on the NAS? Do you require version control?

Basically, provide all the requirements and known specifications first.

Yes, I agree RAID 1, is better, but I wanted to get a little bit more space, so I was thinking RAID 5... four 64gig drives will give me 192gig, where as if I did only 2 disks it would only be 64gig... I would have to get 2 larger more expensive drives to get close to the 192gig of space... The idea of SSD's in a NAS is not for speed..I am aware of this, its more trying to be green, and try to cut down on the failure rate. a NAS never gets shut down. Spinning 24/7, will be like a server. If I can cut down on the failure rate, that would be great. However, having a SSD NAS device would make the access all that much faster, and the access latency would almost me non existent with 30 people pounding away at it. It would not matter if someone had a 1.5 gig PST file on it, its going to be fast no matter what...

I have gigabit Ethernet throughout so this is not a problem persay. My server which has 3 drives in RAID 5 has a single gigabit network device has no problem keeping up...

a NAS means, no OS, no crashing OS, "less rebooting", No CALS to buy...just an overall better idea
