About this talk

The Rules of RAID are Changing, co-hosted by VMware and Spiceworks Back in the day, rules were create for storage admins to make deciding on RAID levels easy. RAID 10 for performance. RAID 6 for bulk capacity. RAID 5 for… well… we’re not sure. But thanks to advances in storage technology like flash SSDs and virtual SANs, the rules of RAID are changing. Tune into this week’s On the Air, where we’ll talk about WHY these changes are meaningful and where we need to go with RAID from here. We’ll be sitting down with an IT pro from the Spiceworks Community as well as an expert from VMware. What we're discussing: How the original rules of RAID came to be... and why they may no longer apply How using flash can change the way you need to think about redundancy (and yes, it's affordable now) How per-object RAID with VSAN can lower your risk as your storage capacity grows
