    Lots of variables

    I can speak from personal experience only.


    Areca 1882ix
    Eight Crucial M960 SSD drives in RAID 1+0 (4TB storage total, 4TB redundant)
    Two logical volumes, 2TB each

    There are two logical volumes of 2TB each because OSX would never let me boot from anything larger than 2TB.

    I am in the latest build of Yosemite, and the SSDs are rock solid and super fast. They will boot from either 2TB volume.

    MacPro 3,1

    Has to be cloned onto, you cannot install, and won't allow recovery partition of course.
