I am new to server management. I have few questions regarding RAID.
I have to built almost 2 servers every week, so I am trying to figure out best way/practice to configure RAID.

min. there are 5 drives on each of these machines, some have more.

for instance i have 5 x 72GB drives, and storage space is not an issue. redundancy is more imp.

Is it ok for me to create 2 RAID 1s and the 5th disk as hot spare for both?

what is the min. requirement to have RAID 10 with hot spare?
