Re: Debian on flash a store.

I also thought about two USB flash drives and RAID:

1.  Instead of RAID0, get a PATA or SATA SSD (or DOM).  Used drives can be found on eBay for cheap, especially SATA I or II.

RAID 0 with USB flash drives ? You like to live dangerously.

2.  Instead of RAID1, use a checksumming file system (btrfs), take images periodically, put key configuration files into a version control system, and backup data daily.  This is what I do for all my system drives.

All these techniques are backup. RAID does not have the same purpose. RAID (with redundancy) is designed to provide availability.
