I am planning to order some new servers. It crossed my mind that I can reduce my costs a bit if I do not order a raid controller.
The logic behind, is that my storage is on a shared storage server, so why should I bother with a raid on the host? especially that I don't order any drives for it, as it will boot off USB sticks.
It reduces the cost by ~400$ but it might be more expensive in the future if I want to re-use this server for other usage.
Anyone has experience in such?
Should I invest the $'s to have a safe mind?
