[SOLVED] RAID 1 without hardware controller


Jan 2, 2020

I am looking to get 2 servers with Super Micro Mainboard from Thomas Krenn: 2HE Intel Single-CPU RI1208-AIXSN Server

I was looking to get:
Broadcom MegaRAID 9560-8i SAS-SATA-NVMe + CacheVault Flash Cache Protection Modul für Broadcom + 2x 3,84 TB Kioxia CD8-R U.2 NVMe SSD

But it is in total € 3400 more expensive than:
Software RAID with 2 x 3,84 TB Samsung PM9A3 M.2 NVMe SSD

Will a software RAID 1 give me the same performance and safety?
Or does something speak against it?
That has got to be the most direct, succinct way of explanation I've ever heard. good work ;)
Thank you also for chiming it. Yes, it was actually exactly what I was looking for. I also marked the topic as solved.
Should let go and just get to work. But I thought maybe there is something more to look at nevertheless :)
