Daniel, I already got myself an account when I noticed Evolt is growing popular and I should get one while they last. However, I just realized my university (of Toronto) offers email for life. A couple of questions, however. What are the uptimes and arrangements backup servers. I do not know much about mail management, so I just need you to tell me that all my mail will come through over the next couple of years I am with evolt. By the way, I am currently applying for a Univ. of Toronto for life address > -----Original Message----- > From: thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org > [mailto:thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Daniel J.

The things that make RAID5 attractive - redundancy, parity, etc - from a reliability standpoint make it a nightmare when looked at from a performance standpoint. If you have a machine that requires heavy disk I/O (mailservers, fileservers, etc) a RAID0(striping) or RAID0+1(mirroring) is your best bet. For machines where reliability is key and there isn't a lot of filesystem activity(webservers, DB servers, etc) because data is stored in RAM(hopefully) RAID5 is your friend. :) </tip> .djc.
