Performance and redundancy ... I've been using 3 drive 1U boxes for awhile
now, and have not been happy with RAID5 ... my latest box had one drive
fail, and until I reformated the box without the failed drive (RAID1), I
had endless troubles with the server's stability. It was the first time I
had taht sort of problem with RAID5, but one of the many reasons I went
with the HP DL360 G4P was that it came with 4xSAS drives instead of
3xSCSI, so that I could move away from RAID5 ... the remote console and
power weighed heavily too (gotta love installing FreeBSD without a
monitor/keyboard attached, straight from configuring the RAID controller,
straight through to initial login, all at the hardware level) ...
