I have received a new server. The server has the following specification. It has 500 gig 7.2K RPM disk, SSD NVME 1.2 TB 10K RPM disk.
All are in RAID 1.
I am planning to install Windows Sever on the 7.2K RPM disks. I want to install SQL Server on the OS drive( i.e. 7.2K RPM drive). I am planning to keep log and data files on SSD and NVME. The 10k RPM drive will be used for backups. NVME drive is faster than SSD. My Windows team recommend that I should install Windows Server on the SSD or 10K drives for performance. But all I care is about SQL Server performance. I don't think that Windows Server will perform badly on the 7.2k drive.
Does anyone see a reason to install Windows Server on any drive other than the 7.2K RPM drives?
