My small business is getting a Dell Poweredge T440 and we were advised to use Raid 1 for the OS and Raid 5 for the other drives.
We are going to get 8, 3.5 inch slots for HDs. OS will use 2 drives and Raid 1. Then we want 4 drives to be set up with Raid 5.
Does this give us 4 drives and 2 "hot spares"?
