revised ECC registered vs ECC unbuffered
Added a reference on ZFS duplication RAM use. Expanded briefly on drive failure issues. Cleaned up wording and tightened formatting throughout.

comment ECC registered vs ECC unbuffered
This is an excellent answer, it can't be any shorter and still address all the questions so well. I just did a moderate edit that cleaned your text up that will help once it's applied. Even removed your apology to trim two lines--the accepted answer here was not very helpful. I did expand briefly on ZFS deduplication concerns and drive error handling while I was in there. Decided not to get into vibration, even though that's going to be an issue with 24 drives too.
