FreeBSD vs Ubuntu Server - Page 2

Ok everything is up and running ( I am using napp-it as well, nice interface!). I am going to add some SSDs now, what ones would be ideal? I am thinking 2x128gb intel 520s. I think the intel ones are the of the highest quality that I can get. Anyone have other recommendations? (M4s maybe?)

Intel 520 are a VERY good idea, reliable, fast and with a super capacitor ( I think ). But you can ask hard forum ( data storage section );
For ZIL drives ... No need to go over 1/2 the RAM ( Maximum possible size of the ZIL cache ) so do not buy too expensive drive for the ZIL cache biggrin.gif


So you use Napp-it? I do too for my NAS, nice interface, what OS have you chosen ? Solaris Express? Openindiana ? Nexenta?

Ok, I have 24 drives in total, where each is 3TB. I am thinking of creating 2 10 disk zpools = 10*3TB = 30TB raidz2 zpools, with a leftover 4 drives (12tb). What use could the 12tb zpool have? I have two SSDs available now, one 320 and one 520 (both are 120gb). Any suggestions as to how to maximize write/read performance?

Is there a way to make ssds work with multiple zpools? or do I need one each zpool? I could make a faster zpool (for writing), and have a slow zpool for storage (but better read speeds), does that make sense?

Should I purchase another SSD?


Edit: @darknight I believe the Intel 520s do NOT have a supercap, only the 320s do, which make the 320 more reliable in case of a power loss.

Edit2: I am using Solaris11 for now.
