What's the best RAID configuration for a singel ESX 3. 5 server
Posted on 2008-06-12
We are looking to put a single ESX 3.5 server in ourenviorment. Mostl lkely a Dell PowerEdge 2950 III.
Usually I get 5 hard drives in the servers we get. 2 set as RAID 1 (mirroring) and 3 as RAID 5.
But with an ESX server does this make sense still? Should the ESX OS go on the mirrored partition and the VMDK files go on the RAID 5? Or should I just do a RAID 5 and put everything on it.
