In the process of commissioning a new server and thought I'd see what everyone thought of this configuration.

The server will be used to host a 1 reasonably large OLTP database at around 40GB and several smaller ones <2gb. The main DB is fairly heavy on both reads and writes.

My questions are
1. am I losing anything by going RAID1+0 on the data and log vol for the main database?
2. would I be better off using with just either the data of log from the main db on the RAID1+0, and placing the tlog and random back ups on the other RAID vol?
3. Ditch RAID1+0 entirely and have a separate vols for the radom db's log and data files.

The random db's are largely web apps with little writes here and there, fair bit of reading, but nothing huge.


2x Disk RAID1 LogicalDisk1 – Local Server Disk   Sysvol C: - Partition1
    Sysvol2 D: - Partition2
   
4x Disk RAID1+0 (10) LogicalDisk2 – Array Disk   Data File E:
4x Disk RAID1+0 (10) LogicalDisk3 – Array Disk   Log File F:
2x Disk RAID1 LogicalDisk4 – Array Disk    TempDB G:
2x Disk RAID1 LogicalDisk5 – Array Disk    Transaction Log backups/ Random DBs(mdf/ldf) H:
Go
