  • Is a 3 drive RAID 5 array a good idea?

    I am specifying a new server and have been told that a 3 drive RAID 5 array is not a good idea as I will not have a bootable drive in the event of a array controller failure. A better idea is O/S on a RAID1 mirror with apps too, and data on RAID 5 array of 3 drives. Any comments please.
