Re: Build a faster desktop with RAID

Posted by: suchi on January 21, 2008 12:55 PM
3ware SATA RAID controllers would be an ideal choice, but if you do not want to spend that much, i suggest you partition both disks exactly the same way, and use mdadm (or similar) to create a software RAID, that should be as efficient...

ps: xfs would be a good filesystem choice for all but the boot partition (say 200M as someone suggested, which should be on both drives, but unRAIDed ...)
