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

I guess it depends what you want to do with the server..if it is for SQL then it will be better to have 1+0 as it will return faster response.

but if you want to use for normal u can use raid 5 too….once you have 5 HDD, you can use about 4TB of space.
