WD Purple Vs Enterprise SATA/SAS Drives And RAID 5,6,10,50,60

Hi,

I would like to know what is the actual difference between Purple drives compared to the enterprise drives like Wd Gold/Seagate constellation etc.

There is change in MTBF yes,but other than that both have rotation/vibration control and if using 6tb drives,both support raid upto 8-12 drives per array.

So if we are using an 8 bay NVR, is it okay to configure 8x6tb Purple with RAID 5? and 16 bay is it okay to configure 16x6tb with RAID 6?

Nowadays there is Purple Hdd supported upto 10tb but most NVRs support upto 8tb,but i always wonder if its safe to use RAID on these boxes which is using soft RAID.

Also please explain your thoughts on using RAID 10,50,60 on 16 drives scenario using 6tb and 8tb purple/enterprise drives.

This is a question i am sure many have doubt about.
