It has been pointed out that 4 x 7200 rpm with RAID 10
might be as good or faster than 2 x 10k rpm disks with
Some more options have been added to the wiki:
The latest being:
- Server Proposal 11
Two dual core AMD 1.8Ghz (ie quad) processors, four
500Gb disks (1Tb with RAID 10), 8Gb RAM
Also I have just realised that 750Gb disks are available
but they are expensive - £250 each, but with four we could
have 1.5Tb of storage with RAID 10...
