    With respect to the tradeoff between redundancy vs. data protection, what recommendations can you make on RAID levels? Is it completely dependent on the environment, or are there clear advantages to using a RAID 5 over RAID 3, etc.?

  • New disks for AS/400

    I want to add new disks to my AS/400. I have 6x36Gb in RAID 5. I want to add 2x146Gb in mirror. My question is. Would it be added to the ASP 1, or I must create a different ASP (ASP 2?) for the new disks as the RAID configuration is not the same.
