Mix 10000 and 15000 rpm SCsi disk in a RAID 5 Chain ?

Hello,

I have 3 disks at 10000 rpm in a Raid 5 Chain. Is it possible to add a fourth disk at 15000 rpm ?

thx

Yes.

Spindle speed doesn't matter.

You can mix Ultra 2 and 3 - but the speed will step down to the lowest speed.

You can mix size - but it will only use the size of the smallest drive.

To confirm,
Yes, as above. There should be no problems, but replacing all the drive will produce the best performance
