    Default RAID 5 & Zimbra

    My company is planning migrate Exchange 5.5 server to Zimbra ZCS open source edition. I have read in the documentation stated raid 5 is not recommended for more than 100 users account.

    We have around 400 email users & we are wondering will there significant slowdowns on the zimbra server?

    We are going to purchase new server & OS would be 64-bit RHEL 6.

    The recommendation is there for a reason, RAID5 is not the best solution - you should read the Performance Tuning Guidelines

    Nothing to do with Zimbra for RAID5..just that if it fails you will have hard time keeping services up as performence degrades a lot and the recovery is slow during this time the no matter what you running on it will be slow and unstable...whole poingt of having RAID is not to worry about all this

    Do RAID 10 and you will be happy..
