Hello all
What is the difference between Software and Hardware RAID? What would be best used for CentOS?
I am using Hardware RAID and would like to know more about Software RAID? Note I am also using MySQL and Apache
Thanx

I think HardWare Raid is more reliable and has better performance. Also software RAID increases CPU utilization.
