FreeNAS Raid or on board Raid - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I'd get the PERC card if i could.

Onboard raid cards are OK for levels 0 and 1 but 5 will be far slower than a dedicated raid card. If you're getting the PERC, i'd go for RAID 6 like it's been said. Offers even better redundancy than 5.

At work we use freenas with a hardware raid 1 setup and it works flawlessly. But it's quite a simple setup.

I remember getting my first 2.1 GB hard drive and was like, Im never gonna fill this up. Sooo....

Raid 6 would be the best option for redundancy but, I dont need it that redundant for what im backing up.. I will probably get 6 drives and use one as a hot spare for no down time.

Yes, raid 5.. I think i will be using a perc 5/i.

Hopefully the Hitachi 3 TB 7,200 rpm will fall under $100 pretty soon.. I would love to have 5 or 6 of these drives..
