I'm about to set up a database server, It has five 78 GB SCSI 3 10,000 RPM's Hard disks and a RAID controller. My first aproach is to set 2 HD's as Raid 1 on one channel and 3 Hd's as Raid 5 on other channel.
For the DB information I'll create a partition on the Raid 5, probably all the avaible space, leaving the Raid 1 to the OS and aplications.
OS White Box or Red Hat enterprise 3.0
Aplicattions to be used;
APACHE, for intranet
Aplications that may be used
Any suggestions ara wellcome
