My server is hardware based RAID 1 configured
I want to add a hard drive so I can split the operating system and date on two physical hard drives which in general increases performance when thy are not on the same physical Drive. Is this possible in a RAID 1 environment? (having the server writing to two drives  and on for mirror? I notice when I configure a server at dell online if I select RAID 1 it will not allow to add more than 2 drives)
