RAID 5, 6 or 10 best for my DAS

At some point I hope to upgrade the stack to at least 8 disks and fool around with some different configurations but thats for next year. I did look at the Areca DAS RAID servers but they are out of my budget range for now. RAID 10 is my favourite, used it in tons of applications for many many years...

RAID 5, 6 or 10 best for my DAS

Mines only a baby http://www.highpoint-tech.com/USA_new/series-rs6414ts-overview.htm I don't know how highpoint compare to Areca ? I would imagine RAID 6 not to be that effective with just 4 disks LoL Probably better sticking with RAID 10 as that gives me faster reads and writes and redundancy.

RAID 5, 6 or 10 best for my DAS

I was going to utilise a RAID 10 setup on my new Rocketstor DAS but I though I might ask you guys what you would consider the better to use ?

This will be used for storing the customers data, post imaging, and before moving to clients new media.

Thanks in advance

Best method of storage arrangement of donor drives ?

Thanks, Ive just had them by brands and then sizes but theres so many to dig through LoL, but I certainly should create a searchable document 8-) Ive seen them somewhere, racks of them arranged by the head code, thought that was quite cool... but perhaps a little too OCD at this moment in time. Is t...

Best method of storage arrangement of donor drives ?

Im looking for advice on how best to organise the storage of my donor drives.

I have circa 500 3.5's and roughly the same in 2.5's but aside from branding and size is there a more efficient solution ?

How do you guys organise yours ?

Thanks in advance.
