    NVMe RAID 1 Questions

    I'm considering getting two Intel P900 NVMe drives and putting them in RAID 1. They will be connected to the motherboard (Supermicro X11SRM-VF). I'm wondering if its possible to configure NVMe drives in RAID 1/0. Does it work exactly like SATA/SAS?

    Optimal FS/RAID for my use-case

    I have ~50TB of content. I decided I will be using a RAID6 setup. I'm wondering what the best RAID config and FS are for my use case. The server stores lots of downloadable & streamable content (videos) with an average filesize of 500MB. What would you recommend? By raid config I am also...

    USB-C to Ethernet adapter not pushing 1000Mbps

    USBC is Thunderbolt, and I have 4 thunderbolt 3 ports, which should go up to 40Gbps.

    USB-C to Ethernet adapter not pushing 1000Mbps

    It appears the same issue is happening with the belkin. My download never seems to go above 750mbps but my upload is always capped at 100mbps. Now I suspect it might be a configuration or software driver thing. Are there belkin drivers? I cannot seem to find them.

    USB-C to Ethernet adapter not pushing 1000Mbps

    I ordered the Belkin USBC to Ethernet adapter. I hope it doesn't have issues. If it works I will end up returning the Anker.

    USB-C to Ethernet adapter not pushing 1000Mbps

    It appears installing the driver partially fixed it. Now my down speed seems to be capping at around 700Mbps but the upload speed is stuck at 100Mbps! :( Is this normal or should I be getting 1000Mbps up and down?

    USB-C to Ethernet adapter not pushing 1000Mbps

    I have a 1Gbps fiber connection and when I use my PC or home server that are wired via Ethernet I get full speeds (up & down). But when I tried connecting my MacBook Pro to the Ethernet wire using a Anker USB C to Ethernet Adapter, Portable 1-Gigabit Network Hub I get a very jumpy connection...

    Best hardware RAID card for massive storage server (24 HDDs)

    What would the rebuild time be for a raid6 rebuild using 24x12tb hds? I will definitely be going with ZFS. I will have to research it a little more but from everything I heard it's the best FS now and for the future. I should point out that this server will host many large video files. 100mb ~...

    Best hardware RAID card for massive storage server (24 HDDs)

    The RAID cards I'm eyeing are LSI/Boardcom MegaRAID SAS 9361-8i and Microsemi Adaptec SmartHBA 2100-8i. Any thoughts on these? The MegaRAID has been around for years. Seems kind of dated but if it works it works? I will be using a MiniSAS to MiniSAS HD cable. The backpanel will have a SAS2...

    Best hardware RAID card for massive storage server (24 HDDs)

    I'm going to build a massive storage server with 24x12TB HDDs in RAID 10. I'm curious what hardware RAID cards you recommend for such setup? For cables I am looking for ones that fan out from 1 to multiple SATA connectors. What do you suggest?
