What's the best configuration for my setup?
« on: April 10, 2014, 04:05:01 pm »
In addition to my OS drive, I have the following drives for use with FlexRAID:

2 x 500 GB = 1 TB
2 x 1 TB = 2 TB
1 x 2 TB = 2 TB
2 x 4 TB = 8 TB
Total = 13 TB

Based on what I've read here's what I'm thinking about using for the configuration:
DRU1:  2 x 500 GB + 2 x 1 TB = 3 TB
DRU2:  4 TB
PPU1: 2 TB + 4 TB = 6 TB

Is there a better configuration? If so, why?

Do you plan on growing anytime soon?  I think the 6TB PPU spanned is overkill for 7TB of data.  I would use that other 2TB as a DRU.  Or you be better of going to 2 PPU.

Most likely if you get a new disk it going to be 4TB minimum am I right. So I would make sure your PPU if its 1 or 2 be at least 4TB each.


I'd probably do something like not sure what others think.

DRU 1 the same
DRU 2 - 2TB
DRU 3 - 4TB
PPU 4TB
