Logical Device Layout

Use filegroups for assigning database objects to one or more files within a filegroup for maximum performance of the Siebel Database. When you group objects, you have the ability to distribute a filegroup across multiple disks, thereby causing less resource contention.

If your Enterprise does not require very high performance, based on the number of concurrent users, for example, use of RAID devices and Microsoft's default setting may suffice. A database administrator must do the requisite sizing calculations to assess the performance requirements beforehand.
