4 x 64 gig ADATA SSDs in MATRIX RAID 10 - RESULTS IN!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
As a few of you know I have purchased six 64gig S599 ADATA ssd's for a server I have built. Since 6 in RAID 0 saturates the controller I've decided to try different types of RAID for this build to find the best performance.

Please check out the benchmarks. I was extremely surprised on the outcome of this setup...

RAID 10

I ran three benchmarks; Crystal 100MB, 500MB, 1000MB, 2000MB, 4000MB, HD TACH, and HD TUNE.

Wow, no comments....

This was my final setup for my SQL server running 2008 64bit...

Crazy fast with redundancy... Perfect!

Its only two drives in RAID 0, mirrored... Pretty impressive..

Let me put it another way...

My current server which has eight 15K drives. 4 of which are in RAID 5, are the database.

When we do a complex report it takes upwards of 1 hour...

This new systems does it in 3 minutes... NO JOKE!

Agreed! I'm using R10 for my Terminal Server too, just the most expensive, but worth every penny because of the performance gains...

IMO RAID10 is the solution many seek when you have deep pockets

My home server has RAID 10 on some LSi Card with 6 WD Black RE4... I'm trying to convince the IT Director to move to a 4xRAID10 Intel 510 Series SSD (since, yknow, we work for Intel ) would make our website feel cooler B)

RAID 0 +1 is NOT RAID 10

Raid 0 + 1 = A mirror of stripes disks.



RAID 10 = A stripe of mirrored disks.



It's a subtle but important difference in topology.
