New Servers

I am planning a new network with 3 DL380 G3 Servers with 5 SCSI 36 GB drives in each. I am using Windows 2003 Standard for the network OS. I was going to mirror the first two drives and Raid 5 the remaining 3 drives for storage. Currently all drives are RAID 5 should I stick with the current config or change to the mirroring?

Re: New Servers

It depends on your requirement. If you want to give extra redundancy to the boot disk (where you plan to install Win2K3) then you can mirror 2 disks and leave the remaining 3 in RAID5.
