I m using T series sun servers with 6 SAS drives. I am having Hardware RAID controller. Now i want root drive mirroring that is with 2 hard drives and want ZFS pooling for rest of 4 hard drives. Now i m confused between UFS and ZFS for root partition and implementation of Hardware RAID 1 and ZFS mirroring for root drive.
Can anybody guide me
(a) what is best option RAID1 or ZFS for root drive?
(b) is it better choice to use Hardware RAID 1 for root drives with ZFS pooling for rest of 4 drives?
Thanx i will definitely go for ZFS.
but one i couldent get ur last point that is " Many of the T series sever models have a lot of compute power. It is very unusual to find an application that can utilize the compute power using just the internal disks."
and one thing more when i m trying to write the boot record on zfs root mirror drive by using this command:-
