I'm planning to install ZCM primaries and MS SQL DB backend on Windows 2008 without virtualization. What is the best hard disk / RAID configuration that will get optimal performance and growth for this scenario. I've looke through the documentation, and could not find any recommendations for RAID and partitioning on the physical server. TID 7000274 is really helpful, but it doesn't mention RAID configurations. I'm used to using RAID 5 in most server installs, but I know that may not be the optimal configuration for the DB and or the primary servers. Any recomendations on hard drive / RAID configurations is greatly appreciated, as well as a virtual server installation of ZCM.
