    need to build a file server with high read-write activity – recording and listening messages.
    The required storage capacity is 300GB.

    The server:

    Proliant DL380G7 x6 core 8 hard drives slots.

    I am planning to use 2 146GB 10k SAS drives in mirror for Windows 2008 and App.

    My question is about RAID for Data partition.
    Only 146GB SAS available with 15K speed. So I will go for it.

    What RAID type will be better:

    3 146GB in RAID 5 or 6 146GB in RAID 10 ?

    For RAID 5 I can put 4 146GB to have more spindels and drop one drive as hot spare.

    Appreciate your opinion.
