I have a new IBM X3650 1U server with 16GB ECCRAM and 2 x 4TB HDD. The server has a C100 RAID which is configured from bios, i don't think this is hardware raid.
I'm thinking of 2 options here.. but need your advice. I'm using this server as a web hosting (directadmin) server and I'm deciding.
- Configure C100 RAID-1 from bios. Install RH Enterprise ($799) and it will detect the RAID-1 configuration and install from there.
- Install CentOS (free) and configure the software RAID-1 during the installation of CentOS
Which is better?
