I am going to lease a server and I have two options, SATA or SSD, I decided to save the money and go for the SATA option. But I do not need all that storage they are giving me! So I thought MAYBE I can setup RAID-0 to improve performance of my HDDs.
Since the server does not have a RAID controller I can only set up software RAID, I've had my experience with RAID on another machine with Windows installed! But I did not really notice any difference.
This server will have CentOS installed, so my question is, will I really gain any performance advantage for setting up SOFTWARE RAID-0 on a CentOS machine? Or is it not worth the efforts?
