Explanation:
18 gb mirrored hard-disk

you should probably say:

18 gb mirrored hard-disk space

--------------------------------------------------

--------------------------------------------------

you would mirror hard-disks for failover purposes. in practise you have two hard-disks with exactly the same contents, who permanently replicate their contents. In IT this process is called mirroring.

--------------------------------------------------

in your scenario, the minimum requirements for the software are 2x9gb hard-disks. That\'s why I extended my initial suggestion to hard-disk space instead hard-disk, because there are always two disks.

Hope this helps,
Klaus
