RAID 5 & Zimbra
My company is planning migrate Exchange 5.5 server to Zimbra ZCS open source edition. I have read in the documentation stated raid 5 is not recommended for more than 100 users account.
We have around 400 email users & we are wondering will there significant slowdowns on the zimbra server?
We are going to purchase new server & OS would be 64-bit RHEL 6.
The recommendation is there for a reason, RAID5 is not the best solution - you should read the Performance Tuning Guidelines

Do RAID 10 and you will be happy..
