I would like to know, how to calculate sustained read and write speeds supported. I don't have access to machine/drive, but need to define specs to purchase one.
What all things would it be dependent on?
Using RAID 10, would improve it?
Would it be dependent on file size, which we read or write?
How to calculate latency of fetching a file segment? Seek time etc..
I need to use it with a web server, for storing and delivering large no. of small files. There will be continuous writes and reads 24x7 of small files. Any recommendations for which RAID to use, or no RAID should be used, based on writes or reads?
