Re: RAID configuration on HP Proliant DL360 G7 server?
My first question would be what are the servers being used for? Most file servers or email servers could easily provide excellent performance on a single RAID5 array, eliminating the need for to many arrays. While disk access can affect performance in a VM, processor speed and number of cores, along with amount of RAM will have more of an impact. That model being a 1U chassis, I'd be concerned with having every drive bay full and the amount of heat being generated by the drives, hopefully there's adequate cooling where the server will be.
From time to time, we have been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. But if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else?
