I am building an Ub3r 1337 server thingy NAS MC server computer thing.
I am planning to have 8 3TB HDD's and I do not know what RAID array to put them in.
I need good writes speeds and some drive failure protection and reads I do not really care about.
Also if I go RAID 50 how big should I have lots of RAID 5 stripes with lees disk or few RAID 5 stripes with more disks?
