Disk Mirroring/Duplexing

By dwaguy ·
I'm planning a Windows 2000 server now for a small shop (@15 people). The server will either be a file server or a mail server. We want to mirror and duplex (RAID 1) the drives (two drives, two controllers). Should we go with SCSI or IDE hardware, and why? Advantages and disadvantages of both.

Thanks.

SCSI - your disks won't have to serialize the requests; as such you'll get a much better performance increase. Downside is that IDEs will be cheaper.

So you have to answer "do I want a slow, cheap server or a fast, not-as-cheap server?"
