    SSD caching on software RAID 1

    Hi guys,

    I've got a server with 2 x 1.5 TB 7200 rpm HDD's in SW Raid 1 and one 60 GB SSD drive and was wondering if it's possible to use ssd caching with software RAID.

    I plan to use it for shared hosting in a few months, so the kernel will be Cloudlinux.

    Also if ou have some links or tutorials I would be grateful.

    There are some software-wise SSD-caching options available.
    Flashcache is 1 of them:

    There are also others like 'bcache' and 'EnhanceIO'. - Online in no time

    Thanks for the replies. Do you have any link to a tutorial that I could use for CentOS/ Cloudlinux ?

    You can try to use Flashcache (a technology developed by Facebook).
