Hi,

Looking for some opinions/links. If a SQL server (OLTP) is restricted to a single box with max 8 drives, would four RAID1 arrays (OS,TEMPDB,LOGS,DATA) be the way to go?

Or a RAID1 for OS and a 6 disk RAID10 for the rest?

Or RAID1 OS, RAID1 TEMPDB, RAID10 for the rest?

Thanks

The first item to separate wpuld be the transaction logs. So more like this

RAID1 OS, RAID1 LOGS, RAID10 for the rest
