New fileserver - how to do storage?
This may be in the wrong place (How do you do it...??) and the topic is probably all over the place.
Getting a new server to act as a fileserver. It will store user homedrives and probably 2 other network shared drives.
It will have 2 HDD's set as mirrored for the host OS (Server 2012 R2). It will then have 10x 3Tb drives for the share storage.
My question is... what is the best/most efficient way to setup the storage for the 10 drives?
I don't really want to use RAID 10 due to losing half the space but other options could be RAID 5, RAID 6 or some quirky VHD/Storage Pool option in Server 2012.
