ubuntu 10.10 raid 0


Hi!

I got a motherboard asus m2a-vm that has support for raid 0,1 and 10 and I was just curios if anybody has used a fakeraid for raid 0 with ubuntu. If so did it work out as planed? Thanks

Personally I would never consider using raid 0. LVM offers the base functionality and a lot more besides.

Well I wanted raid 0 but I don't have a raid card for it. I would like raid 0 because it would increase my I/O that I could really use. My MB supports raid 10 but don't have 4 HD. I would like raid 10 for speed and redundancy but I think I would like raid 0 since I backup on my files on my file server anyways.

But Where I am really confused I noticed ubuntu don't support a fakeraid. Now the confusion is, is the motherbored integrated raid features a fake raid or software raid. I always thought it was a software raid till I read up on some stuff and got confused about this. I would prefer hardware but kinda broke right now.

Thanks

as above, LVM will provide this, it uses a strip size as per raid to spread data across disks, rather than just filling one up first and then using the other.
