Is there any method of creating a fault tolerant disk array with a mix of disks? I intend to use debian linux stable as a file server for home. The data is going to be cloud backed up but I don't really want to have to restore from the cloud as it would be slow so my aim is to be able to lose one of more of the disks. Performance is less of a concern as resilience.
I have 6 disks of varying capacity, brand, and speed which I want to create as fault tolerant as possible.
1 x 2 TB
2 x 1 TB 2 x 500 GB 1 x 40GB SSD
I don't think (but I could be wrong) I can use traditional RAID sets as none of the disks are paired.
