Installation Best Practice - Raid 1 or Raid 10


  • I am getting ready to install SQL 2005 on a Server 2008 box.  The box has a Raid 1 where the OS sits and a Raid 10 for the data.  When installing SQL (program files), where should I put it?  On the raid 1 or 10?  Can I do the install on the Raid 1 and put the actual DBs on the raid 10?  Sorry for the noob type of question.  The only thing I came up with in a search is people debating which type of raid is best.  Either way, I need the actual data on the raid 10 as that is my larger store.
