I need some RAID suggestions for 3 SSD's???

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
ok so, ive got 2x30gb Kingston SSDNow V Series that runs at:

Read up to 180MB/s
Write up to 50MB/s

and i have 1x64gb ADATA SSD that runs at:

Read Speed Up to 280MBps
Write Speed Up to 270MBps


im currently running Raid 0 and made 2 drives of 58gb from 3 SSD's!!! (total 116gb)

now after awhile i decided to make 1 drive out of 3 so i can have one drive of 116gb instead of 2 separate 58gb. which Raid i can use since i have 3 drives that are in different sizes and not lose any space?! also does my speed lowers when i combine these 3 SSD's??


Thanks

If you make raid0 config with 3 drives the speed often decreases. The only way to add that 64gb drive to the other ones is to keep your 60gb raid0 and jbod it with the adata drive in windows.

thanks for the response !! that actually make sense! so what you mean first i need to RAID0 2x30gb and then JBOD it with one 64gb? is that even possible to do?....

First in the raid bios create the 2x 30gb raid. Then in Windows (not the raid bios) create a jbod with the 64gb and the 60gb raid.

thanks noobhell for helping!!

so I've heard with Jbod, it just uses 1 disk, then when its full, it continues to use the second disk, right? so how will that work when we combine the raid0 with JBOD? for example when i copy the file how the disks manage to copy? will it fill the RAID0 first then qoes to 64gb? im confused? if its working like that then why not just JBOD all drives?the reason im asking ive never actually worked with JBOD before since its not good to make the SSD's full, it makes them slow....?

Yeah it would first fill the raid0 config and then fill the other drive. You can also put all 3 in a jbod in the raid chip bios. Just those 30gb aren't very fast so it would be better to raid those.
