ok so I now have a 10gb network and I can saturate the setup I have... I had a pool with 3x 2tb and 2x 4tb - sata drives. All WD Blacks... I added an ssd cache and installed the optimizer and I guess it works for copying files TO the pool. However I do a lot of retrievals and just ordered 2x 6-2.5 hot swap bays. first setup I bought didn't like and returning.. second one will be here in 4 days... so I have some time. new pool will be 12x 500gb crucial ssd - Pool 1 (6tb) 2x 4tb and 2x 2tb (for now) wd black and 500gb ssd optimizer - pool 2 (12tb) my thinking is... I don't retrieve much but when I do, I want it fast... so keep software and iso here and a robocopy job to copy over to pool 2 so it can replicate. does this sound overthought? I have a server 2016 with essentials role that I am using right now with ssd optimizer and mess of wd black drives and has been great. just setup a new box running server 2019 ( essentials role is gone and that sucks) / stablebit drive pool / 2x hp h220 sas controllers (to handle the 12x 2.5 drives) and room for growth. thoughts?
