We are buying a dual hex core ibm x3650 with 64 GB RAM and 7x300 GB HDD. This server is hosting two virtual servers, web server and database server. I am using Double take high availability to replicate the database into a different physical machine. Veeam is used to backup the virtual servers every night.
If you are using a laptop or a computer, you may often have to face the problem of crashing hard disks. Many times disturbance in Exchange Server indicate a hard disk failure and obviously you get worried because crashed hard disks often lead to loss of data and information.
Linux partitions are basically of three types: swap, root, and home. The swap partition is used for Linux swap space, root partition for Linux and the installed applications, and home partitions for holding /home directory i.e. data. When it comes to data accessibility, the latter two partitions are comparatively more vital for uninterrupted data access.

If you can, get 1 additional drive and set it up as a hot spare at a minimum.Having recently experienced huge data loss when 3 out of 4 drives in an 8tb RAID-5 failed.... Backups are even more important when running RAID.
