Is it okay to run the OS on a raid setup or run the OS on a stand alone disk and run the data on the raid setup? I'd prefer to run everything on a raid 5. I've always used adaptec controllers so I am not sure how reliable running Raid off a system board.
Thank you. Please keep in mind that any failure may be causing serious damage to the information. Also the data may get corrupted due to viruses. You may also face a slower performance installing the OS on the RAID array.
We would recommend installing the OS on a separate hard drive or SSD.
