Can I utilize a software RAID to improve the I/O performance of my SATA Cloud Block Storage volumes?


Yes. However at some point the cost benefit of utilizing multiple less expensive SATA volumes in a RAID configuration will be outweighed by the benefit of utilizing a single higher I/O SSD volume. In the event that you are looking to increase the I/O performance of your storage volumes, we encouraged you to utilize higher performing SSD volumes for increased disk I/O.
