Of course, you need to go with Enterprise drives.

The users don’t complain about performance currently, I was just thinking it would be nice to get some performance out of the upgrade. With that time and experience, I can honestly tell you that RAID 10 works best in an “always-on” server situation.

Raid 10 might make Kerio perform better though. The drives all show up fine in the onboard utility, and the array is in an optimal state.

If you can’t upgrade the controller, then the CERC should work just fine for satx. For details and our forum data attribution, retention and privacy policy, see here. Submit a new text post.

I wouldn’t want to run without a hot spare. My goal is to provide a few days of safety should rwid drive die and I’m unable to get on site within 24 hours.
