right now I've got an Ubuntu Server with a 3x4TB Software Raid 5 Configuration.
I came to the conclusion, that the best for me would be to switch to Windows Server.
I also researched that RAID 5 configurations shouldn't be used anymore due there is no parity during rebuilding.
Right now, I'm unsure how I should arrange my disks in the Future Windows Environment.
I concluded to several options:
- Storage Spaces in parity mode (should be similar to RAID 5 with single parity only, should have bad performance)
- Buying a 4th Disk and using Storage Spaces in mirror mode (should be similar to RAID 10 or 01)
- Buying a 4th Disk and arranging a Raid 10 with the onboard Raid Controller (it's an HP Microserver Gen8)
What would be the best choice? or even another option?
Thanks in advance
