Hi i will build a custom server to handle 2000 students.
i already have 250gbx2 HDD in raid1 and 1 128 gb ssd.
I was planning to use the SSD as a main drive and the raid array for system backup.
But as i learn about SSD Caching, i've noticed the speed is on par with stand alone.
So now i have 2 options :
1. Stand alone SSD with raid backup
2. Main raid drive + ssd cache.
What is the most optimal and secure?
Will the system still running when the ssd cache died (for the lower durability).
The moodle system will be heavy with lessons and quiz.
