But out of the population of arrays that are made out of Barracudas, you are likely to have an artificially high rate of data loss, because some sets of drives are statistically more prone to fail. I think you’ve grossly read into that statement. You’ve both provided good advice in helping me through this process. I can point to numerous discussions of this. Your competitors thank you too. I wouldn’t build a software array from disks connected to various controllers.

I have 5 seagate 2 TB drives. Many of them cannot afford to be building excessive amounts of backup and redundancy into their systems, and have come to FreeNAS in order to protect their data with ZFS. I get paid for results. Sign up using Email and Password.
Sold a bunch of those, though, we made heavy use of them in a drive chassis design that a bunch of Usenet providers adopted as the cheapest way to store large quantities of data.
Thanks for the tip. So, I configured the 3ware card for hardware raid 5, TB. I’m doing ZFS and it works well, but I need 4 more ports. 3warr a FreeBSD developer, see http: I think if I 3wqre each ZFS volume on its own controller, things will be fine. When trying to install freenas, the install stops giving me the following error: Truth is, whether you, I, 3wzre anyone likes it – these shelves of disk that are installed by major array vendors sometimes many racks’ worth are usually supplied through a single disk vendor’s run of disks from a particular batch.
Some of these guys are buying drive chassis like the Norco, and at that point, it’s definitely worth looking at doing anything and 9500e you can to protect your data. I’m well known in the FreeBSD community for disk related stuff.
3ware S-8 Specs – CNET
We adopted 3wade ‘s in late when support in FreeBSD was still very sketchy, 6. Or look for the ZFS references to it. Please don’t suggest “ease” as an excuse for bad practices. This is a simple thing to do to encourage reliability and availability. Now, if you’re small, they may simply choose to ignore your business if you insist on heterogeneous storage.
I’m 9500x will cause some problems later on down the road? I’m well known as the primary developer behind Diablo, the Usenet news package used by numerous service providers, who compete with each other on how many petabytes of storage they currently offer. We run a lot of traffic through ‘s though.
3ware 9500s -12
Major array vendors stand to lose not 900s money, but consumer confidence if their arrays are constantly losing customer data as your opinion would suggest since they’re using disks from a single run. I can point to numerous discussions of this. It’s that same sort of thing. This is not new or unusual advice.
If this year’s Barracuda has some bad runs, your array built out of WD Black’s isn’t going to be more unreliable because of it. I don’t think I have any more of the ‘s in stock, we mostly use the ‘s these days for 3aare.
I wouldn’t build a software array from disks connected to various controllers.
While it is very unlikely 3wwre a user who has a small quantity of drives in RAIDZ2 will lose enough drives to render the pool useless, the fact of the matter is that you can reduce that risk further through careful selection of hardware. But seriously, now, my point is to avoid giving people advice that’s commonly understood to be bad.
When you get that far, that is.
I’d like to end up around 10TB. May 29, Messages: But out of the population of arrays that are made out of Barracudas, you are likely to have an artificially high rate of data loss, because some sets of drives are statistically more prone to fail.
