Home Computer Audio Asylum

Music servers and other computer based digital audio technologies.

I used mirroring with my desktop for a while, but

realized there was no real value to be found. Unlike business servers where transactions change data on a minute-by-minute basis, music servers are relatively static. It really doesn't make much sense to spin (and wear) multiple spindles for data that doesn't change that often.

I decided to use the extra drive as offline storage that runs just frequently enough to include new content.

Result? Quieter and more efficient environment with far greater overall MTBF.

For business applications, however, my company recommends the use of RAID 10 for optimum performance and redundancy.
