I recently built a new server with the following:
Dual Xeon E5620 2.40
24GB of memory
Operating System partition on Raid 1 with 2 450GB SATA Enterprise drives
Storage partition Raid 1+0 four 2TB SATA Enterprise drives
Windows SBS 2008
Running the following
Exchange Server 2007
Accounting Software using Pervasive SQL
3 SQL server applications
General file sharing
The performance is decent by not great. I went with the SATA drives to save some money and to cut down on heat in the server room. Does anyone know how much of a difference 15K SAS drives would make? Am I taking a big performance hit for using RAID 1 for the operating system? It saved me having a huge headache once already, Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Well, best place to see some differences is to go to some place like http://www.seagate.com and look up the specs.
