Question raiding real world performance

Is there any real world performance increase (Noticeable performance increase, faster load times etc) that would give a good strong reason to go with a raid0 config over say 1 500gb drive?

Re: raiding real world performance

agreed
I dumped my Raptor raid after it decided to self destruct
OS on one drive and its all good.
Easier to back up too

Re: raiding real world performance

In general no difference.... but there's a but... in the real world you'd sometimes copy large files or copy several large files to different locations... and raid sometimes will speed up the time it takes to copy stuff.

There's a huge difference in times when i copy 30+ GB of SDTV PVR recorded videos from one drive to another when it's non-raided versus my Raidcore PCI-X 4x 320GB 7200.10 Raid 5 array - raid 5 array is much faster in transferring the files.

And raid 5 has saved my bacon more than once when a drive fails.. with raid 5 just replace failed drive and Raidcore rebuilds my raid 5 array and no data loss

Note raid 5 onboard motherboards is alot slower than a dedicated raid card like Raidcore BC4852 PCI-X

Re: raiding real world performance

yes redundancy is great but performance is not so great UNLESS you can spend $500 on a decent card

and the improvements are in file copying mainly

QFT! No real advantage.

Also while RAID5 reads are quicker, writes are much slower as it has to write the data in more than just one place. This is greatly reduced by a good RAID card but will never be as quick as a single drive.

Re: raiding real world performance

2 x 150 GB Raptor Raid 0 FTW!

I hate the interminable pause when logging into XP as AV firewall and other apps load up, I hate waitng for ProE and Unigraphics and Adobe CS2 to load, I hate any load time for programs. Large file copies are sooo much quicker.
