We are planning on setting up a RAID on one of our Netware servers. As
we want striping and data redundancy, we have limited our choice to RAID
levels 0+1 or 5. The documentation that came with our controller
explains that 0+1 uses striping and mirroring while 5 uses striping and
parity. It does not give any other differences. If there are no other
differences, then RAID 5 wins hands down as we would be able to use 75%
of our drive storage for data as opposed to 50% for 0+1.
Does anyone know of any other trade offs? Is 0+1 faster and or safer?
