I am using an Intel X25-E SSD for the system drive of a Windows Server 2008 R2 server with 16 GB RAM. Would it be good practice to move the pagefile to its own drive? If so, for the pagefile drive, would there be a preference for SSD or conventional hard drive?
The storage configuration also includes two data volumes, each of which is implemented on a 4-disk RAID 10 array, attached to a PERC 5/i Integrated RAID controller. The server is a Dell PowerEdge 2900. It has 10 slots in its backplane, one used for the SSD, eight used for the RAID 10 arrays, and one empty slot that is available for a pagefile drive.
