setting up a raid config with ubuntu server
I have recently setup ubuntu server 12.04 (no gui) on my old pc. Then I decided I wanted to fool around with it for real and run backups and a raid config.
So I bought two 1TB internal hdd's and a 2TB external for the backups. I have a 320GB internal that I am currently running the OS on and plan to have that dedicated to it and my swap (unless that is a bad Idea and I should push the extra space onto the raid if possible).
Not sure what kind of raid I should do since I plan on doing backups maybe weekly or monthly.
I was thinking of raid1 but since my data will be backed up relatively regularly then I thought maybe that was too redundant and unnecessary and a waste of my space.. I have a lot of music and pictures and games on the upwards of 700GB or so.
So Now I'm thinking of a raid0 with my safety net as my external backups.
I was wondering if I should reinstall and setup completely new with the server raid software from the cd.
Also, I was planning on running samba but wasn't sure of special gets of it.
