Compaq DL360 hard drive(s)

By sfarah ·
I purchased a Compaq DL360 server from Ebay. The server did not come with hard drive(s). Can a single hard drive be installed in the above, or are hard drives installed in pairs...? The above is for a home lab.

You can buy a single drive. I would recommend buying 3 though so you can experiment with the different RAID levels if you can. Having 3 allows you to do RAID 0 (stripe across all three, no fault tolerance), RAID 1 (2 mirrored drives, fault tolerant), and RAID 5 (striped with a parity drive, fault tolerant, most common config).
