    Hi all,
    I am about to configure my first Hyper-V installation for a client & as I am ordering the hardware I want to be certain about the Host disk drive configuration.
    This will be a simple installation in that there will be no “Clusters” or SAN storage. I have gone with 4 x 3 TB SAS drives in a RAID-10 configuration using an Adaptec 7805 RAID controller. This will provide a 6TB partition. Is this configuration recommended over separate RAID arrays? ie RAID1 with 2 x SSD drives for the host OS & RAID-10 with the 4 x 3TB SAS drives for the guest VM’s?
    I cannot seem to find an article that stipulates the best disk configuration.
    It should be noted that eventually there will be 2 Hyper-V guests on this host & I would have thought that separate RAID arrays, for each guest would have been “over the top”
