I am on the cusp of possibly doing a RAID 0 between two 500 gb hard drives. The primary reason I want to do this is two fold. First, it'd be nice to have faster boot time. Second, and the main concern, is that I'd be able to read and write things (hopefully) twice as fast for research purposes.
So I had just convinced myself to do this, when I thought to myself "what if I just run two processes on seperate drives". Would that do the trick, without having to RAID?
Does any one have any experience with RAID?
