We are only a small business but are expanding quickly and have more users on board these days. I currently have a Dell 1600 for my Exchange 2003 server, configured with two 36Gb disks.
Disk 0: OS, Logs
Disk 1: database
Now I want to go about adding some fault tolerance to my disks, so am thinking of purchasing another two 36GB disks and setting up software RAID-1 using Windows.
1)Does anyone have any tips\best practices or word of caution before I look at doing this ?
2) This shouldn't affect performance of the Exchange database should it, as RAID-1 improves Read speed ?
