I have proliant DL380P GEN8 , I'm going to deploy sage 300 ERP system ,and use the sever to host the company's website..

I have 8 SAS HDD (2TP 10K SAS),

my questions plz:

1- what's the best RAID configuration for my HDDs?

2- Is it better to use HDDs in bay 1 & 2 as RAID 1 logical drive and install Windows server 2012R2 on each of them??.

3- Is there any way to protect my HDDs from damaging ,as 4HDDs suddenly stopped working and during powering the server on asked to replace them

 

any advice would be appreciated
