For now, my Linux server is equipped with a tiny harddrive (1.2Gb) just for the OS. Although this works perfectly, I’ll be upgrading soon. I want my server to do more things than it does now, so I need more space etc.
Anyhow… I have two old harddrives laying around and I want to use just one of them.
HDD1: A SCSI-UW disk (7200rpm, 6Gb)
HDD2: A DMA 33 disk (7200rpm, 6Gb)
If I’d pick the SCSI disc, I’d have to fetch me a 68->50 pin convertor, as I only have 50 pin SCSI cards.
I’ll be using my system for the following tasks:
- fileserver (data is located on other disks in RAID-1 setups)
- IMAP server (dats is located on a separate harddisk just for email)
- blackbox + vmware + win2k for data exchange (data is once again located on a separated data disc)
- various other packages (without high capacity cost)
What would be the smart thing to do? Arguments please
