I have a small machine (EliteDesk 800 G4) that I plan on using as a VM / Docker / Plex server. The machine will have an nvme SSD (512) and an SanDisk 3D SSD (1Tb).
I'd like to know the ideal unRaid setup given I'll only have a couple of SSD's to use. From what I've read so far, I have a few options;
1. Both devices assigned in the Array, no parity.
2. One as a cache drive, one in the Array, no parity.
3. One as an unassigned drive, one in the Array, no parity.
4. Spare USB stick assigned to an Array, the rest as Unassigned Drives.
There's other combinations of the above, but you get the gist. I'm not looking for any redundancy. What's the best approach given my needs? From what I understand, having all of the drives in the Array with no parity shouldn't cause any issues - but looking for some community recommendations if possible.
The machine will mostly be used as a Plex server, but I'd like to have an Ubuntu VM and the ability to fire up an additional Docker container or two when needed.
Thanks for any advice and help.
