Current set up I would like to replace I currently have an eSata RAID enclosure (CalDigit S2VR HD http://www.CalDigit.com/S2VRHD.asp) set up for performance. It does it's job well (except for some inconveniences with my previous computer). However I am thinking of replacing it due to the following factors: 1) It is 4 years old and I am worried that the hard drives would start to fail. 2) Currently I am using it under Windows 7 and there is no software controller for it. 3) Next to my Mac Pro it sounds like a jet engine. I use the drives to edit HD video and long down time is costly. If a hard drive fails I currently do not have a back up system (the data is backed up) in order for me to continue. I am worried (not sure about this) that if a drive fails I would need it's driver software in order to rebuild the stripped array which is not compatible with Windows 7. Proposed System and questions I have decided to get 3 SSDs and place them in the Mac Pro's Hard disk bay. I was thinking of using Windows disk manager to stripe the drives. Is this possible or do I need a RAID card? I am thinking of buying the Corsair Force 120GB SSDs; if I stripe them would I get the theoretical 750MB/s Sequential Read and Write speeds or do I end up with the speed of 1 drive? Another thing when I boot to Mac OS X would Mac OS X annoy me every time to initialise them? If it is the case is there a method to disable the pop ups? Capacity isn't a huge problem as these act as my working drives once the project is finished it would be dumped onto the CalDigit which in turn is backed up. Normal project size is about +/- 60GB. Sorry for the long post. Any input is appreciated.
