View Full Version : SCSI RAID.. Any Advantages over IDE RAID?
10-05-2002, 07:35 PM
I bought a Western Digital SCSI 10K RPM 9 GB HD about a month ago. I am considering buying an identical one this weekend and using it in a SCSI RAID system. Any advantages over an IDE 7200 RPM RAID system?

Its the same advantage with single scsi versus ide. Better access speed from multiple hits and such. Basically its great for servers, but for single users, the need is sorta fading with the ide performances ever so slowly gaining.

Like chosen said...reliability. While the max throughput of the IDE devices are catching up to SCSI, its the reliability factor that still makes SCSI appealing. I have also hear rumors that the platters themselves are of higher quality overall then in IDE drives...hmmm sound like a Intel isn't the only one that found a way to maximize the profits.

I would hardly say the total throughput figures are closing. SCSI still maintains more than a 15MB/s advantage over the fastest IDE drives.

so, that said....you'd need a raid scsi card to do that, right?
how much do those run for?
