Installing an OS on my new C1100? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Would it be worth buying a PERC 5 or 6i? I would like to do RAID 5.

Depends on what your plan is for your server. If you plan to run any sort of software, database, or virtualization, then RAID would be a definite benefit for uptime/availability/performance. I would also highly recommend doing a RAID 10 instead though. Better performance and reliability. 4 x 2TB drives in a RAID 10 on a PERC 6i would yield about 4TB usable space, but give you ~350-450 IOPS and sequential R/W around 300MB/s. Not bad for how cheap you can do that.
