    Red Hat also warns that software RAID levels 1, 4, 5, and 6 are not
    recommended for use on SSDs. During the initialization stage of these
    RAID levels, some RAID management utilities (such as mdadm) write to
    all of the blocks on the storage device to ensure that checksums
    operate properly. This will cause the performance of the SSD to degrade
