We're buying a four way PE6650, partly because of the excellent support
on this mailing list. I thought it might be prudent to solicit comments
from the list about our proposed configuration:
4 x 1.5 GHz/1MB cache Xeon
8 GB RAM
PERC3DC w/ 2 internal channels
3 x 146 GB 10K RPM Ultra 320 SCSI Hard Drive
Set up as RAID 1 w/ one hot spare.
PERC3DC w/ 2 external channels (to connect to a PowerVault 220S)
Red Hat Linux 2.1 Advanced Server
7 x 146 GB 10K RPM Ultra 320 SCSI Hard Drive
Set up as RAID 5 with one hot spare
It's mainly for MySQL and multi-threaded applications that use MySQL.
Does this make sense?
