You truly know that your a computer geek when you hollar "Woot" to your first RAID results and have to call up the wife and kids to see. Quite frankly I don't think I will ever forget the look of confusion on her face as much as she won't forget the look of amazement on mine. She felt a bit out of place when my son started telling me how amazing the speed was.
I locked myself in my office this past weekend in order to finally tackle something I have always been curious about, performance in a RAID environment and how easy it would be to construct such a thing.
After spending endless hours locked in the room, building, testing and ripping apart only to rebuild again, I have put together an article that I believe will show, not only the benefits and absolute amazing performance increase possible, but also how really simple it is to build.
