I'm building a storage server for online video streaming. I thought about adding two SSD drive for a OS. other 15*(12 SATA & 3 SSD) drives i want to build with aufs XFS and ethernet 4GB/sec network.
But I'm confused a little. S5520HCR board supports 6, SATA/300, RAID: 0, 1, 10, Intel ICH10R. Does it mean i can use SATAIII HDD? I'm planing on buying SEAGATE SV35 Series (3.5, 3ТБ, 64МБ, SATA III-600).
also my Chassis supports up-to 16 sata and the motherboard only 6 what kind of sata controller should i use?
What's better in terms of performance 1366 or 2011 socket?
My server so far:
