I have a new system to be implemented and I am battling around raid 5 or 6. If you will be implementing a server with quad core 2.83ghz, dual processor, 8gb ram, rack server, redundant power supply, and doesn't matter how many hard drives but sata drives with 250gb of space. Will you choose raid 5 or 6?
