I was reading on wikipedia about RAIDs trying to pass the time and I
was thinking why not have RAID 5+5 or 5+5+5 levels, sure you waste
2/3th's of your space but wouldn't this be a killer setup for a
directory server where fast reads are of the utmost importance?
Would you add up the transfer rates for each drive to get the total
transfer rate of the array?, if true you could easily saturate a 10
gigabit ethernet connection with a 555 array of IDE or SATA drives.
Anyways... I was just trying to pass the time :-)
Also, why can't we apply the concepts of RAIDs onto x86 PCs for a RAIC?
