I have a server for a client that will be hosting large files. They are looking for a 20 TB array.
Now, before I start, this will be backed up every night via the cloud / crashplan and the information will also be up on dropbox so it will be more than backed up.
That being said, uptime is something we would like to keep.
Server network capacity will be a 6 aggregate gigabit connection to it (6 GBPS) so I would like to maximize array performance to use that capacity.
Would I be best served making a raid 0 or raid 5 using the motherboard's raid (non cache, no battery backup for raid, although the server is on a 30 minute UPS)
Or using ubuntu 16.04 lts Mdadm or LVM?
If I wanted to grow the array to include more space later, Can I grow it with Mdadm? or only LVM?
This array will be comprised of 5 or 6 4tb drives, hitachi nas deskstar 7200.
Files will be both small PDF's of several KB's to 2-4 Gb files as well.
