Thread: Raid?

  1. #1
    i ordered a gbit server from h-ie. 2x750 GB HDD. for the raid option i clicked no since i didn't know what it meant. but i've since heard you get faster speeds with raid 0. is that true? if so is the difference noticable? and if they charge me for raid is it worth it? thanks

    It gives a ~80% boost in disk operations, but the average read access stays the same.

    Because getting your account banned sometimes isn't so bad.
