We have a service with a SQL box on Amazon EC2 and, as suggested on this question, we are using EBS to store the data... the problem is, What is the best way to setup the storage?
At the moment, during the Development phase, we have 4 10Gb "Disks" (should be enough for the next while, might look into more later) in RAID 0 (this worries me...). We take backups every 3 hours of the SQL box itself, but i am worried about the RAID 0 and loosing an EBS volume causing us to loose a couple hours of data...
Im just wondering, given that we are running Windows, what is the best practice for this? RAID 1? 10? 5? Something else?
