comment Is there no easy way to use the Hyper-V Manager remotely?
Have you considered remote desktop into the server and using it "locally". You can even use RemoteApp to make the remote application appear "local".

comment 3disk in raid 1 using half/half
Irrespective of what you call it, software RAID 10 is what the OP described, he just didn't know what to call it - hence the question. As for the recommended or not... that's not for me to decide. RAID10 on three or four disks - there isn't much practical difference.

comment Software RAID 10 not any faster than s/w RAID 5 on Ubuntu 14.04 box, why?
@DavidSchwartz For RAID 10 you still only need to work with two disks, while for RAID 5 you need to work on all disks.

I would expect random writes in RAID 5 to be considerably slower. For RAID 10 you have to write to two disks only. For RAID 5, you have to write the block to one disk, write out the parity to another, but additionally you also have to read out the rest of the data blocks from the same stripe in order to recalculate that parity.
