I currently have HP ML350 G6 with 2x300 GB raid disks.
Server main purpose is: - Exchange server - Office network (25 users) - File storage
Now one problem is that one department has a need of archiving files (lets say it is an active archive which is used on a daily basis).
I was checking disk prices and trying to figure out a proper solution for this. This is what I came up with...
- Any disk has to be setup in raid to protect from data loss
- I need at least 2x750 GB (raid)
- Since I plan to leave Exchange and system files on original server disks, are there any other alternatives for file storage in this configuration instead of adding additional disks.
What about diskstation or some other external storage solutions? Do I need to pay attention for 7.2 or 10 K disks when used for file storage (speed issue?)
