hello, im planning on building a 48 tb server for movie storage.
this would most likely be the configuration
1 areca ARC-1680IX-24-4G PCI-Express x8 SAS RAID Card
24 Seagate Constellation ES 2TB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Enterprise Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
1 SUPERMICRO MBD-X8DTi-F-O Extended ATX Server Motherboard
2 Intel Xeon E5506 2.13GHz LGA 1366 80W Quad-Core Server Processor
2 Crucial 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM Triple Channel Kit Server Memory Model CT3KIT25672BA1339
1 SUPERMICRO CSE-846TQ-R900B Black 4U Rackmount Server Case
this would be configured in raid 6 and windows server 2008
what i would like to know is what are the chances of a raid like this failing and what kind of environment should this equipment be placed in ?
