Re: mirror raid card

you should have no problem with it
you know what raid card will be used
even better you can make it with
Duplex SCSI backplane p/n 371722-001

if needed throw on the different channels

Re: mirror raid card

I suggest you to protect all data. It's not good enough your protection if you want to avoid downtime. Maybe your database is safe, but if you loose the OS disk your will be down for a time that depends of your recovery stratege. You may configure as RAID 5 all the 4 disks and protect yourself agains failure of any disk.

Any RAID controller can handle RAID 5.

Re: mirror raid card

thank you guys for your responses.

My HP dealer has suggested to buy a G5 instead of a G4p which happen to be ending its life.

will see if my budget allows it!
