We operate a file hosting website, and due to rapid growth our servers are under immense pressure from users uploading and downloading.
A typical server's configuration is as follows:
2 x Intel Xeon E5620 @ [url removed, login to view]
24 x 2TB HDD
Adaptec Hardware RAID
We need our new servers' RAID configured using the optimal configuration using XFS journaling file system. Please only apply if you have experience configuring hardware RAID with XFS.
When applying, please suggest which RAID level would be best for this server configuration and why? We already know which RAID level we're going after, but this is the only way we can filter applicants. We hope you understand.
The budget could be decided later as we're pretty flexible with it. The budget is just entered as a "placeholder".
