What is the best RAID configuration for Exchange 2007 SP1?
I need to install Exchange 2007 SP1 and I would like your suggestions for the RAID configuration.
This is what I have available:
-HP DL380 G4 dual processors (Xeon 3.0 Ghz with 64 bit support) and 10 GB of RAM
-Two 72 GB SCSI (10K RPM) for the OS (RAID 1) which will be Windows Server 2008.
-Four 300 GB SCSI (10K RPM) for everything else.
-The size of the existing storage group (mailboxes and PF) is around 75 GB (currently running Exchange 2003).
Please aso include the number (and what to use them for) of volumes / partitions that would provide the best performance with the given resources.
Any and all advise is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
