We've recently purchased a new server with 3 400GB SSD drives and 12 600GB 15K drives. Our goal is to create a few VM's running terminal server (or RDS as its called now) for our in house users.
When creating the RAID I was wondering what is the best option? I used to do a mirror drive for the OS and then a RAID 10 for the data. however, I want to be able to utilize the SSD's in the best way possible and I'm not sure if ESXi/vCenter automatically takes advantage of them. We are on 5.1
We will be using Windows Server 2012 when we build the RDS servers.
