I own a file hosting service and i am kind of not sure what to do with Raid.
My server Configuration is as follow:
Dual Xeon E5620
24 GB ECC DDR3 RAM
12 X 2 TB 7.2 Enterprise Drives
10Gbps Port Speed
No i have Raid Configured to RAID5, and it is a disaster.
I am serving about 30,000 Downloads per day from this server, about 15TB per day.
My current read speed is as follow:
:~# sudo hdparm -t /dev/sda
Timing buffered disk reads: 232 MB in 3.18 seconds = 73.01 MB/sec
I don't know what Raid Configuration should i go with, keep in mind that i need as much space as i can.
Thanks in advance.
