We are buying a dual hex core ibm x3650 with 64 GB RAM and 7x300 GB HDD. This server is hosting two virtual servers, web server and database server. I am using Double take high availability to replicate the database into a different physical machine. Veeam is used to backup the virtual servers every night.
I was wondering which RAID configuration is best for the environment.
RAID should meet the following requirements:
- At the time of failure or rebuilding the array, less chance of data corruption.
- Otherwise corrupted data will be replicated to another system
- As these are production system, performance needs to be high and downtime should be minimal
