  • Hi Experts,

    Just need some advice.

    I have a server with 8 x 600Gb disk and am looking at setting up a RAID for it. The base OS will be VMware ESXi.

    In terms of speed, redundancy and storage, what will be the best RAID level for me to use:

    1. RAID 10

    2. RAID 50

    3. RAID 60

    Am I correct in saying that all 3 RAID levels will not sacrifice storage?

    If this is the case, than would you agree that RAID 60 will have better redundancy and read/write speed than the others?

    Are there any caveats I should be aware of before using RAID 60 i.e. Cost or slower read/write speeds?

    Kind Regards
