Perhaps n_w_a's concern's are about redundancy, not performance.
Yes, two Intel Octane 900P can be combined into RAID with an Intel's VROC key.

And RAID 1 is a poor substitute for an actual backup routine.
Any business that runs a RAID 1 for "redundancy" also has a real backup.

And if you have a real backup, and can suffer through 30 minutes of recovery...RAID 1 is not needed.

You are right, we don't know to what extent he got serious :)
Two Intel Optane 900P's could be candidates for database temporary tables/logs or ZFS's SLOG, when mirrored.

And for that use, you'd be consulting your DBA, and the server team.

Thank you.
Actual numbers...:)

"VROC's performance is disappointing. At the very least we expected to see parity between a single Optane 900P SSD and the VROC array, but the single drive delivers much more performance in desktop applications than the array."

Why not with Intel VROC, it's hardware R5?
