jebusfreek666 Posted June 16, 2021 Share Posted June 16, 2021 I know that you can use them, I am just wondering if my use case is a good idea or not? I want to use one as a location for my CCTV. I will have around 15 cams recording 1080p 24 hours a day. I want to write to a cache device so avoid the constant writes to the array. And since the largest SSD's are crazy expensive, I figured I could just throw a 6Tb HDD in there for this purpose. Then have mover run and put the videos on to the array overnight for storage. I would then have a script (I assume?) to remove files from the array when they reach 30 days old. So, basically I am wondering if the use of a HDD is better for this instance (or possibly 2 in raid 1) or would it be better to use multiple SSD in raid 0? Quote Link to comment
