New SIMS Server RAID 5 or 10
I am in the process of speccing (is that even a word?) a new SIMS Server. Its going to be a DellT710 with 2 Processors and loads of RAM. I am going for RAID 1 for the OS but am not sure if I should go RAID 5 or 10 for the Data and more essentially SQL. Will I see a noticeable difference in SIMS performance with RAID 10 over 5? As its primarily going to be a SIMS Server I am not concerned with losing disk storage to RAID 10 but want to know if its worth the effort.
If any of you SIMS experts could comment I would be greatful.
