You don't want to use raid 5. raid 0+1 is recommended. Suggestion: look into using ASM (Automatic Storage Management) and 10g. Simply put, ASM is basically a database file system. Oracle will manage the mirroring of the database files for you transparently. You'll want to do some reading and research on this, obviously. Received on Sun Dec 12 2004 - 21:57:49 CET
