    In my home PC, one of my two HDD that I have in (btrfs) RAID 0 failed. So, I am shopping for the replacement. I am planning to install FreeBSD (zfs) and set up RAIDZ (buying 3 SSDs). Now, I am reading everywhere that mirroring 2 disks (1 vdev per disk) is faster than RAIDz1 with 3 disks. And it...

    I'm not a newbie on ZFS but I have never used before a RAIDZ2 pool. Now I have migrated two VMs to another host.
