Thanks for all your replies! They are enlightening. I have some
1) Would you prefer
a) 5.4k 2" SATA RAID10 on four disks or
b) 10k 2" SAS RAID1 on two disks?
(Remember the lots (!) of random reads)
2) Should I just make one large partition of my RAID? Does it matter at all?
3) Will I gain much by putting the OS on a saparate disk, not included
in the RAID? (The webserver and database would still share the RAID -
but I guess the OS will cache my (small) web content in RAM anyway).
