I'm gonna channel Bob Zelin here and say you never want to use RAID 0. Sure, it's fast and it sounds neat, but it's mostly for the marketing guys to throw big numbers at you and make you go WOW. You'd

I've connected four different four TB drives in a RAID 5. This gives me 12TB to play with. I'm editing video with it. I know normally with hard drives you want to keep free space on drives. Do I need

We haven't seen substantial increases in read speeds moving from 6- to 8-drive arrays, mostly because of the theoretical limits of Thunderbolt. If you think you'll be good with the storage space of th

Looks like it runs on Linux, so it probably works great. Unfortunately, you'd have to migrate all your storage over to a Linux box with ZFS and all that, which probably isn't worth it. Plus, if you do

Two things. 1) That's only a SATA II card, so your speed may be slower, depending on what drives you have. I would recommend looking for a RAID controller that is SATA III, as pretty much all new driv

You lose one disk amount of space. For example, if you have 4x3TB drives, you will have 9TB usable space. The performance of Thunderbolt is more than adequate for editing almost anything up to 4k. --
