Personnaly, I would do a Raid 10 with all the disk (3*2, ~900 Go of 
storage). Better performance and security, and install Proxmox on the 
whole volume.

I would not backup on the same server.

Note that it is not very secure to use only one server for all, and for 
example for mail server, which is quite critical. It would be better to 
have a real cluster with at least three nodes... Power Edge R730 is 
relativey old, is it still under maintenance from Dell ?

My two cents...
