Hi all, I'm building a FreeNAS box to provide iSCSI targets for a few Windows servers. These targets will be my users main file storage. So far (during testing) it's working great..... However, I have a question regarding ZFS vs RAID5 setup. My server is an HP DL 380G5 with 32 gigs of RAM, and 8x500 gig SAS dual port 10k drives. I'm a bit "old school" and have set the drives up in 1 big RAID 5 array, managed by the internal HP RAID card. In this setup, if a drive fails, I simply replace it and the HP RAID card rebuilds the array in the background, and all is good. However, everything I read about ZFS, says to set the drives up in a JBOD configuration, and to let ZFS take over the drives..... I'm much more interested in using ZFS for it's snapshot and ZFS send functions (data backups) rather than trying to tweek it for speed. The system seem plenty fast as it sits. Opinions?
