RAID 5 or RAID 50 for media file system?

WHTer highclass is putting together a 20 drive media file system for many small image files and also MP4 files under 10Mb in size. Technically he'll be connecting 20 PM883 7.68TB SSD drives to a Broadcom 3108 RAID controller and asks if RAID 5 or RAID 50 would be better, and why, and if there's any suggestions for a different RAID/SSD/controller. There are already some suggestions in the thread, including several to avoid RAID 5, and recommendations for other drives, but what's your take on this? Have you experience of creating large RAID arrays for numerous small files? Share your ideas in the thread.

January 2022 Server Parts Pricing Report

Gabe has released his first server parts pricing report of 2022. It's been more than a year now since he started tracking and reporting on changing parts prices for RAM, SSDs, Hard Drives, CPUs, and a couple of GPUs, and sharing it on WHT. He's continuing to gather all listed prices from eBay, for used hardware, but he may start tracking more new hardware as well if there is a demand for it. Prices are as of 3rd January, 2022. Don't forget to check the "noteworthy changes" comments at the end of his report, which highlight variations that have been picked up on from the previous month.
