Thanks for this JJ. Not sure if I can stretch to an r900 but should be able to get a 2950. Wasn't sure whether I should be looking at SAS drives or SATA - I'm more used to SCSI3!! What's the best / difference?
I quite like the idea of 6 drives and splitting O/S, database and logs. Although you guys think that I might get away with just a raid1 and a raid5?
