I am currently planning to try out something, just out of personal interest. My mainboard, which is currently the "msi Z270 SLI PLUS", contains a feature named "M.2 Genie", which is basically nothing more, than a "one-click-RAID0" feature. With a single click in the bios, you can activate RAID0 for the two m.2 (nvme) SSDs on your mainboard, which increases the write/read speed by 70% (msi's statement!). Despite the fact that this could be a wrong information or simply wouldn't work... I just wanna try it out, since I finally have more time for myself.
But with RAID0 comes great risk... normally. Therefore, I wanna make daily veeam backups on an external storage device. Searching for a good, low-price but also RAID compatible external case, I stumbled upon this one here (Link).
It's an Icy Box IB-RD3621U3, made for a 2x3.5" HDD/SSD constellation and RAID0 / RAID1 compatible. I will use it in RAID1 Mode. Speed-wise it is limited by 5GBit/s by the USB 3.0 connection.
As always with computer stuff, low-price devices with big promises should raise a red flag or at least some doubts. I mean... the Raid config can be changed through switching f*cking jumpers in the back of the case.
But that's why I am here. Would this be enough for personal use?
I am specifically asking the guys, who have dealt with those external cases or similar ones - I'm a qualified system enigneer, therefore I can "assume" stuff myself.
Sorry for my broken english, greetz from Switzerland!
