Vote of the day: RAID10 vs RAID6
Got a QNAP 8 x 2TB as a repository for Veeam, configured as RAID10 giving us 8TB of redundancy storage. For nearly a year of usage no problem, but I'm wondering now if I should configure it as RAID6, thus giving us 12TB of still redundancy space, 4TB more to backup that will come very handy
Should I be bother to reconfigure? I take it RADI6 will be slower to write, but considering the backup take place off production hours, who cares if it needs a few more hours to finished? I originally chose RAID10 as the word 'parity' give me the itch after a fight lost with some RAID5s. What would you do?
