Was there anything specific that helped you decide on a RAID-5 and not a RAID-10?

performance testing on restore times. My DB is more than 50% write, so I needed to optimize for writes.

I have my DBs on RAID10, and would soon be moving them on FC drives, and i am considering RAID-10.

If I had to do it over again, I'd most likely go with RAID-50, and take the hit on restore time for the advantage on reads. I have to dig through my records again to see the details... but then I have to do all that for my OSCON presentation on this topic at the end of July in Portland, OR. ;-)
