Hi,
  I have a relatively old server that I am  trying to use as Hyper-V replica server.
  It has IntelĀ® Server Board S5500BC,  Xeon E5645 2.4GHZ 12M (6 core) CPU, 32GB RAM, LSI Logic SAS9260-8I SGL.
  I am going to set up Hyper-V OS on two SSD drives on RAID 1  and looking for enterprise grade SATA 7200rpm Hard Drives by either Seagate or WD. Preferred capacity is 8, 12, 14 or 16TB on RAID 1.
 What make/model hard drive have best track record? What make/model would you recommend?

Thanks.
