RAID configuration
Presently we have a 9iOracle database sized at approximately 50MEG on an HP-UX 11.11 server on a SAN. Our software app vendor is telling us that we should have the database on RAID 10 for better performance. They have done benchmarking with DB sized at what ours will be in the future. (Multi terabyte). Their testing was not done on a SAN. Based on costs and disk requirements should we consider this without hard evidence? Thanks.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You should be OK on Raid 10. We are currently struggling with a multi-terabyte ERP on Raid 5. Our hardware folks pushed us to Raid 5 so they could celebrate increased performance on backups. As a result we are suffering on all the writes.
