    Hi :)

    I would like to ask you about your opinions how to utilize two SSD discs on webserver.. I read many articles about raid, disc mounting, lvm, disc caching, etc. but still I am not sure how to decide which solution would be best for future using & utilization.. (I don't need do custom backups because of scheduled backups on provider side) See below for a brief description of the server. Thanks in advance for tips

    2 threads Xeon 1.70 GHz
    8GB RAM
    2× 60GB SSD
    Automatic internal + external backups

    SW - Debian 8, Apache, MariaDB, ISPConfig

  2. Hello :),

    I will suggest you to go with LVM partition so that you can use your whole 120GB (60GBx2) disk for the storage.

    With 2 disks you have 3 options, no RAID, use each disk individually, RAID0 and RAID1 and if you care about your data and availability you really have only the one option
