It may make sense to split the workload DB (one server) and the
app-server/file storage (another server).

The best RAID level for a PostgreSQL DB is RAID 10 and for regular file
storage probably RAID 5.

However for smaller installations everything on one server is probably
fine. An SSD for the system (and perhaps) the DB and regular hds for the

At my servers I don't have SSDs (four years ago when we bought them they

they are nice and fast (though still expensive).
