I’m very interested in setting up an server running Nodeworx and Sitework but have a question I’ve been unable to find the answer to on the forums or on the site including the demos.
I would like to put 2 hard disk drives in the server I’m planning on setting up. Normally I’d configure these as software raid mirror set.
Would this be a good configuration for a Nodeworx/Siteworx based server or would 2 independent disks be better?
From what I have read on the forum it appears that the Interworx package currently doesn’t support multiple disks (or doesn’t allow you to choose the disk to place a users home directory on). This doesn’t bother me as I would be using the extra disk more for backup and disk failure purposes than user directories.
This leads me into a second question. I see Siteworx provides the user a means of backing up their files (files, databases and email).
Is there a way of backing up the Nodeworx data (user accounts, configuration, maybe even user data too) ? I didn’t spot it in the demo if it is there.
I’m asking because backups are important to me as I would like to be able to recover from a hardware failure as fast as possible with minimal data loss. I currently plan on keeping an off-server copy of at least all the configuration data and bandwidth permitting user data, updated regularly. This off-server copy would be located in Australia
Can anyone offer any useful suggestions in addition to this on setting up a new Interworx server ?
