Watform Ubuntu Migration

NAS settings


  • Name: watform-nas (uwaterloo.ca)
  • RAID 6 ( Striped set with dual distributed parity, provides fault tolerance from two drive failures).
         Capacity: since we have 6 disks of 1.3TB, we'll have 4 * 1.33TB  (5.5TB)
         Raid 6 array continues to operate with up to two failed drives. 
         Our larger RAID will be more practical, because large-capacity drives lengthen the time needed to recover from the failure of a single drive. 
         Single parity RAID levels are vulnerable to data loss until the failed drive is rebuilt: the larger the drive, the longer the rebuild will take. 
         Dual parity gives time to rebuild the array without the data being at risk if a (single) additional drive fails before the rebuild is complete.
