hi friend

I have a server with cPanel, which uses a 1Tb disk


the disc that has been left small, and I want to add a second, third, fourth disc

it is possible to configure cPanel, so that randomly (or established by SysAdmin), host the new hosting accounts, store it in the second disk, and when it reaches 75% of use, the new hosting accounts are stored in the third disc, and when it reaches 75% of use, the new hosting accounts are stored in the fourth disc

Not exactly. But you can mount new disks as /home2 /home3 etc and when cPanel creates a new account it will create it on the disk that has the most available free space.

I have a question and I would like advice, to obtain a better performance / speed and security of information

I'm going to buy a server with 4 disk ssd, of 1Tb each (server for hosting)

I was evaluating using it like this:
/home -> disk ssd 1
/home2 -> disk ssd 2
/home3 -> disk ssd 3
/home4 -> disk ssd 4


or use a Dell PERC H700S RAID (512MB Cache) , to make a raid10

Obviously, with raid10 I would lose 2Tb of space , but it would gain redundancy of information

What is your opinion about this configuration?
