ICH10 Raid5 vs Perc6/i vs NAS

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
I'm brand new to this forum and of course i joined it because i have some question and it seems that this is the right place for good answers.

I have just bought 3x2tb 5900 seagate hdd and i'm planning to build a raid 5 array because of the higher data safetyness. I have a asus p6t deluxe mainboard and i was wondering if the performance of perc6i deserve the extra money or shall i pick a nas ?
It is perc6i more secure than the onboard raid controller?

Lets say that the most important thing is not the speed but the safety of my data, but of course speed matters.

Thanks in advance guys.

Safety is dependent on how loose with your data you are. As long as you run firewalls and antivirus you should be okay. If your wondering about encryption then that isn't dependent on a raid controller and has to be done on the software level. Unless your running a parity raid (raid 5 or 6) then there is no use for buying a dedicated raid card.

i want to protect my data from lossing in case of a hdd failure and not agains mallware or antiviruses, they are not executable files that can be infected but raw videos, i'm not interested in encrytion since these are my personal stuff at home.

You need to research the types of raid then. You'll most likely want Raid 1.

The PERC will allow you to move the array to any system as needed.

RAID5 will do in your case since you are writing once, ready many.

If you want increase protection, RAID6 is very redundant. It is RAID5 but uses 2 parity blocks.
Once again...

+1 for raid 6 with large drives as rebuilds can take DAYS with 2tb drives, if you lose one drive, you may lose another during the rebuild with large drives. not to mention standard desktop drives don't always play nice in arrays...

Worth mentioning too that parity raids are MUCH slower to write than raids 1, 0, or 10.

Some good questions that I'm wondering too. I have tons of space in my case, and I don't see the need to buy a separate NAS box, I just want to have hot-swappable data redundency for back-ups only.
