Happy Friday everyone,
Interested to see people’s opinions on this subject. RAID for backup storage, most (I really hope all) organisations will use RAID for the storage underlying their backups. But, what type of RAID do you typically use, and why?
Vote in the poll and then share any particulars below. For example, if you use RAID 60, but choose to have 4x stripes vs 2.
I want to add, there are no right or wrong answers (even you RAID 0/ No RAID brave people!), but there’s always a reason behind the decision, were you after maximum density, improved write vs read, maximum durability, reduced durability due to multiple copies etc.
