comment Can disks be accessed independently in a RAID-1 volume?
@jpganz18 Since you mentioned that the server is kinda old, IO load will not be your biggest concern with this server as there's relatively low user load as well. The raid1+raid6 solution I recommended above is probably the safest/most efficient way. That way you're safe up till 2 drives if they go south. You could split it up with more arrays but they don't really offer you anything extra. If you would end up needing more IO for the database and want to keep everything as is, then you could make a raid1 w/ 2 drives for the OS and a raid10 for the database/user content on the remaining 4.

@jpganz18 What do you plan to use the machine for? Is it as server or a workstation? Do you run a high traffic database or file server? Do you store mostly large files? (10Gb+) I can suggest other schemes that might work better but I need more info.
