Oct 02, 2015 RAID 1 is pure mirroring. No matter how many drives you add to RAID 1, the size never increases. What you increase is how many drives can fail and how good your read performance is. So 2x 1TB drives in RAID 1 = 1TB. 20x 1T drives in RAID 1 = 1TB. It never changes. The size is always the size of the smallest drive in the array.

This is a typical setup and mirrors the old practice of putting the OS on a separate disk. But it's not necessary nor is it a good use of disk. Here are the more popular configurations:
1. Put the Hypervisor on an SD card or a USB drive. Once loaded into RAM, the hypervisor does very little disk activity. And they are typically small enough to make this practical. (<8GB for Hyper-V).
2. Create one large virtual disk in RAID and put two partitions on it. One for the OS and one for data/VMs.

3. Standalone auto tune app. If your system can't boot from a > 2TB drive, stripe two virtual drives on the RAID - one for the OS and one for the data.
