1 main Solarwinds server and 3 additional pullers and 1 extra WEB Server "VMs" for 30 consistent users. I also need to keep historical data for 12 months.
Would this work for best performance ?
I know I have raid Zero, one disk fails and SQL will stop working but I don't mind as long as the database DATA does not get damage is this true?
