That’s a Rock Solid storage system
8 X 10TB WD Gold drives with 2 Spares in a RAID 6
Mean time to Data Loss? >3 Million years!
Going beyond best practice, Standard RAID 6 means 37.5% (3) of these drives would have to fail simultaneously to cause data loss. How do we reduce that risk as extremely unlikely as it is? We make sure no more than 25% of the drive array is from the same manufacturer’s batch.
