Hi

Its not necessary, but for me, on a server I prefer to have 99.9% uptime , if you get a bad sector or drive failure, you will at least still have the server up and running and after hours you can swap the drive (depending on hoe long it takes to get one and if your chassis supports hot swapping a drive or not) All my servers are hot swap, and we configure them to have a raid 1 for the OS partition and a raid 5 for the data partition, (some special servers (running SQL) we have a Raid 10)
