Recently, I just bought a
HP Microserver Proliant N40L for use it as dns, http, vpn, file storage and also for backups of other computers at home. I already have 2 1Tb HDD's, so I thought to buy another 2 HDD's and install is as raid5. This way, I could have 3Tb 'usables' for storage everything I need.
I just see through that the Microserver has a eSATA port on the back of the case. So, I am thinking about to install a 5th HDD for be the system disk one. I mean, to install
Debian (root and boot) in that disk. I just only to buy an
eSATA->SATA connector, because the 5th disk will be
The point is: is there any performance difference doing this way, using the
eSATA as "main disk"?
