My System Specs

Default Partitions in RAID

I'm planning on setting up a RAID 5 array for data storage in the near future and I was wondering if it is possible/worth partitioning the drive.

When I only have one hard drive in the machine, I usually create a system partition for the OS and commonly used programs. I was under the impression that doing so would improve the overall system performance (if only through data consolidation) I was wondering if the same thing holds true for a RAID array.

I know that I won't really need to worry about performance for a data store, but I'm just curious.
