    Anyone know how the Mac Mini Server is set up from the factory if you get the 2 drive option? Is it configured as RAID 0 or RAID 1?

    Wanting to get the 2x256 SSD option. I want to know if I can have the second SSD set up just to keep all of my media on it. I am thinking I should be able to do this the way it is shipped out. Anyone know for certain?

    Definetly not RAID 0 on the two HDD option when I bought a server. I can't see them striping the SSDs either. You can't run a recovery partition on a RAID 0 set up from my experience from memory last time I did that, so I don't think they give you that factory setup.

    Two SSDs is mighty expensive as a factory option? You haven't thought about buying your own two SSDs and installing them?
