SQL Server 2012
« on: March 19, 2013, 06:50:56 pm »
currently building a box to host our SQL Server database.  Quad core server, 8 GB RAM, running Windows7 with SQL Server 2012, boot drive will be a single SSD, and plan on mirroring 2 SSDs for the SQL Database.

Started looking at FlexRAID due to Windows7 software RAIDs lack of notifications of drive failures.

I am only concerned with the Data redundancy (mirroring) to prevent downtime in a drive failure (will have a separate backup as well), and notifications, and of course performance.  I figured Real-Time RAID is what I want, but dont know much about the other FlexRAID options

is anyone using FlexRaid with SQL Server?
will there be any performance issues?
any suggestions on the best FlexRaid setup?

Do not put database files on FlexRAID whether Snapshot or Real-Time.
Databases are the one thing FlexRAID is not suited for.
