Raid1 and JOB together

Postby taboros » Sun Dec 13, 2015 7:24 pm

Hello,

I have a Syno 210j and I wish to replace it by a new NAS. One model which is considered is the AS3102T.

Is that possible to configure this model in a way that I buy 2 x 3TB HDD, and on each I allocate 1 TB for a RAID1 and the other 2TB to JBOD or RAID0? I.e. I will have 1TB as RAID1 and 4TB as JBOD or RAID0?

Thanks
taboros

No, you can't combine different levels of raid on the same physical disk. Asustor doesn't support multiple partitions on drives, so you have a single partition and it's set up as part of a raid or not according to how it was initialized and it's the entire drive(s) involved.

If you haven't seen it already, I suggest you look at this support document from Asustor:
http://download.asustor.com/college/en/NAS_251_Introduction_to_RAID.pdf.

This talks about the different Raid levels and how they are applied within an Asustor product. Since the OS handles the partitioning of a disk or disks int eh system, it's not possible to have a combination of raids on the same physical drive. Other OSes do support this, but Asustor doesn't as yet.
