DSM RAID or Controller RAID

Recommended Posts

hi,

 

I'm about to set-up an XPEnology server running on a HP Microserver Gen8 and I wanted to know if I should configure the disks as a RAID set within the HP controller or leave the disks as a JBOD and use the DSM software to configure the disks?

 

Personally, I thought if I used the controller card it would provide better performance although I'm unsure if creating the RAID set within the controller card would be compatible with DSM and I don't have enough disks to test the theory (unfortunately)

 

thanks for any help in advance.
