Window Server 2012 Hard Drive Allocation

Copper Contributor

Hello World!.


Good day, I'm currently working on a server for a medium scale business with 30 - 40 user user. I use Window Server 2012. Its my first time to setup window server from the scratch. 


Currently we plan to buy Intel® Xeon® Silver 4210 Processor.


My plan is that. i will buy 2x (500GB with 15 rpm) and do a mirror raid for my OS (c:) and buy 2x TB with 7.2 rpm hard drive for the main storage (d:) and have it in a mirror raid. And my backup will be a NAS setup.


Is this a best way to set my hard drive for specific purposes? Hope you can help me with this. Thank you

What you proposed should be fine. You can also vet the components (supportability) here and with manufacturer.
