Setup RAID 10 on HP ProLiant Server and Why its Better

Setup RAID 10 on HP ProLiant Server and Why its Better


hey what’s up guys it’s Paul from the
sysadmin channel in this quick vid we’re gonna go over setting up rate in on our
HP proliant dl360p gen8 let’s get started alright so really quick I booted
into my my server and we’re prompted with the option to F8 to get into a
ROM Configuration for Arrays utility will go ahead and press that and
then from here we’re going to select or actually we want to view our drives
first we want to view our Arrays first so we’ll click into there right now I
currently have a raid 5 and I want to get rid of that so let’s go ahead and
click on the delete alright press F3 to delete logical Drive perfect
alright it’s going to save the configuration and once once it’s saved
go ahead and press ENTER and now we want to create a new logical drive so we’re
gonna select all four of my drives here I have 4 600 gig SAS drives and we are
gonna tab it out and on the right hand side you can see Raid 1+0
RAID10 alright so I want to press f8 to save the configuration that’s fine so
you might be asking yourself why would we use RAID10 well it’s fast the reason
being that it’s striped across multiple disks so data can be read quickly and
efficiently not to mention that it’s resilient aka fault tolerant go ahead
and comment below if you know how many drives can fail in a RAID 10
configuration the biggest downside though is that RAID 10 eats up about
half of your storage for mirroring so if you have about a terabyte you’re only
going to be able to have 500 gigs usable space alright so those configurations
say then we’re going to press ENTER to continue I’ll go ahead and take a look
at what we’ve created and now you can see that I’ve created a RAID 10 with 1.2
terabytes of space so question for you what are the minimum number of drives
required for a RAID 10 be sure to let me know in the comments section and that
about wraps it up for this video this video sucked do you know what to do but
come on guys if you liked it go ahead hit that like button and get subscribed
for more awesome content like this until next time this is Paul with the sysadmin channel signing out

  1. The video is fine, however I am used to configuring multiple spindles, disk 1 for data, disk 2 for indexing, disk 3 for Temp databases or as in Oracle temp tablespace and UNDO. Maybe another one disk 4 for redo logs or transaction logs. Depends on how many disks you have. With this configuration how do I achieve this? So actually how many logical drive will I have? You have not shown that. Thanks

  2. "How many drives can fail in raid 1+0 configuration?"

    All of them
    If you mean "How many can fail without losing data?"
    The answer is 1
