RAID-0 for SSDs

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, Nov 11, 2010.

  1. Just looking at this review of the Sony Vaio Z128, which has 4 64GiB SSDs in
    a RAID-0 configuration, and my first instinct was “No! What if one drive
    crashes?â€. But of course SSDs don’t crash, so why not?

    Though I would consider using LVM rather than RAID-0. That way you can add
    more flash RAM (if the hardware allows the upgrade), and seamlessly expand
    existing volumes without reformatting.

    RAID 0 is all about speed. To heck with safety. Worse than a racing car
    driver on the track.

    Lawrence, step away from your political associates.
