- two raid arrays?
February 29, 2008, 3:43 pm
rate this thread
installed/used raid but it occurred to me that it would be nice to have the
OS and programs on one HD with a backup on a second identical HD. Also to
have an addition third HD for data with an additional identical fourth HD
to backup the third.
So my question is:
Is it possible to run two different raid arrays at the same time to
accomplish what I described above?
Hope this isn't too stupid a question.
Re: two raid arrays?
Yes you can but I would advise not doing so unless your
primary concern is keeping maximum uptime and you have a
separate backup as well.
The reason is that a problem with the OS will be present on
both of the mirrored volumes, and a virus or user mistake
would also effect both, for example a virus that deletes JPG
would wipe out the contents of 2nd drive equally.
