S3700 SSD server configuration recommendation

I am putting together a server needing about 400GB of storage. Using S3700 SSDs, which of the following configurations is recommended?:

  • One 400GB drive
  • Two 400 GB drives in raid 1
  • Two 200GB drives in raid 0
  • Three 200GB drives in raid 5
  • Four 200GB drives in raid 10

We will initially be using about 250GB of capacity in for a Win 2012 server. With hard drives I would use a raid 5 or 10, but with a product as robust as the S3700, I am open to other opinions. Backups are performed daily.

Thanks for your help.

Hello engene,

In this case we recommend you to verify with the system, motherboard or RAID controller manufacturer regarding the compatibility and TRIM support. They may have a list of validated models.
