I need to install SQL Server 2005 (64-bit) on two new servers, but these servers have only four hard disks with 500GB each. From what I understand, all my operating systems, data and log files will reside on these four disks.
I have two choices: to use RAID Level 1 or Level 1 +0. Which RAID level do you suggest, and how much RAM should I need for this server?
