I have a client that has a server. Proliant HP server. It's pretty new with 512 ram and it does have Raid options in the setup. The hard drive is only 40gbs and it's getting full. They also have a dvd burner they use for backups.
I would like to put two drives in the computer and mirror one. I proposed at least (2) 100 gb drives with one mirrored.
Are there any instructions on how to set it up? Is this the right thing to do? My goal is to have their normal backup via DVD but also have the other hard disk just incase. If one of the drives ever crashes is it easy just to swap them?
What's a good quality hard drive to use?
Any help would be appreciated.
