FMServer on Xserve
We currently do not have much redundancy on our Xserve. FMServer runs on a single drive and we do frequent backups to the internal and an external drive.
We are thinking about running a setup where the OS is on one drive backed up with the ability to restore and the FileMaker Databses on another drive that is Mirrored using the built in OS X software RAID software.
Does anyone so a problem with running this setup for FileMaker? I have read doing a RAID1 (Mirror) can decrease performace because data has to be written twice, not like a RAID5 which is faster. Is anyone running this setup? How is it working out?
