I am working with several Dell PE720xd. I have 24 disks per server at my disposal with a high end raid card with 1GB RAM and BBC. I will be building a distributed-replicated volume. Is it better for me to set up one or two large RAID0 arrays and use those as bricks, or should I make each hard drive a brick?

This will be back end storage for an image search engine with lots of small file reads from multiple application servers.
