We are setting up a new Windows 2012 R2 server. This will serve 25 client pcs on the local network for roaming profiles - acting as a domain controller - file sharing -
We have no databases and no exchange data to be hosted locally.
we wish to have 2tb of data capacity.
The server will be an ML 350 g8 - HP server - running windows 2012 R2 (WE WONT SET THIS UP AS A VIRTUAL SERVER) so will be physical Windows server install.
Will 2 x 2tb - RAID 1 be adequate? or best to get more drives and setup with raid 10 ? or Raid 1 for system partition and Raid 5 on a data partition etc?
The client does not want to spend huge amounts on an overkill server.
Please advise on your thoughts
