[filmscanners] RE: Re:Computer size: RAID

Trying to figure out whether any
increased performance would be worth the loss of data if one
of the drives goes. On my current system I use the second
disk for daily incremental back-ups (without full mirroring)
which would be useless with the level 0 RAID. How, also,
does RAID interact with PS's desire for partitions?

As for any future large video editing project it might just
be better to dedicate a couple of drives in RAID to the
editing at that point.

Comments on my reasoning on this (or lack of it)?

For Photoshop, with that much RAM, SCSI striping would not be easy to
justify. You just won't be going out to disk that much if you clear history

For video, an external RAID array is the way to go. That takes care of
cooling issues. The video system I use at work has two internal ATA drives,
one for O/S and programs, one for archiving work off of the SCSI array. We
have an external SCSI array with an 18GB logical drive for audio and a 36GB
logical drive for video. Each logical drive is a pair of striped drives.
This is the often recommended configuration for any video work above the
amateur level as it separates the writes of audio and video, while
maximizing the write rate of each.
