I’m here with another crazy question
Most (if not all) mainboard have RAID controllers embedded in the PCB, but I never used a RAID system.
After the HDD crash, however, I’m considering to use it to build a RAID1 configuration.
Is it possible to build more than a single RAID array (I hope that “array” is the correct term)?
For example, if the mainboard has 4 SATA slots, is it possible to use 2 of them to build a RAID1 with two HDDs, and the other two slots to build another RAID1 completely separated from the other? In this way it should be possible to have two separate storage buckets.
I’m not even sure if this makes sense. I’m just curious
BTW, is it better to not use the embedded controllers and get a PCI/PCIe card instead?
