My client just bought server with 16 SSD drives in it. What would be the best option to go for RAID? I want to use RAID 10 but I was wondering if I should do them in 4 x RAID 10 (4 drives each) or 8 x 2 o 16 x 1. I guess the safest option is 4 x 4 so that there's a lot of possible options to recover from a failure (less percentage of loosing data due to multiple raid's) and quicker rebuilds. However how would it affect performance? Would 16 x 1 in RAID 10 be better then 4 x 4?
Usage will be Hyper-V and databases.
