Hello guys,

I have a question for those using Linux (more in particular RHEL or CentOS)
in production environments: what is, based on your experience or
conversations with other sys admins, the most popular, favorite, reliable,
or what ever you want to call it, configuration/selection of FS(ext3/4,xfs,
reiserFS, etc) and hard drive config (partitions, raidX, LVM, JBOD, etc) for
a production system?

I know that maybe the answer will depend on what apps you have in the server
(DB, File Server, Mail, WebApps, etc), but in general, what is the most
common scenario in production regarding to FS and HD config?
