Replacing Raid 1 HDD's with SSD's - Migration question
Dell PowerEdge T620
Windows Server 2012 R2
2 x E5 2640 Procs
64 GB RAM
2 x 500GB HDD Raid 1 OS
6 x 2TB HDD Raid 5+1 Storage
Uses: Plex, VPN, BlueIris, Backups, File Sharing
I want to replace the OS HDD's with SSD's. I have 2 x 256GB Samsung SSD's.
Should I use SSD's in Raid 1? I've heard mixed reviews on using them in Raid 1 for a home server due to performance issues.
If I do end up using the SSD's in Raid 1 for the OS what would be the best way to migrate from the existing HDD Raid 1 to SSD Raid 1? Does Samsung Magician offer this capability? Can I just replace 1 HDD and let the array sync and when complete swap the other? Or should I just bite the bullet and re-install WS2012R2 from scratch? '); }
