dell 2T 7.2k nearline SAS 6Gbps- ingress/egress throughput
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?
Say if I choose, dell 2T 7.2k nearline SAS 6Gbps- how to calculate ingress/egress throughput?
Edit (More info):
- Raid Controller - PERC H700 Integrated RAID Controller, 512MB Cache, For x6 Backplane
- 6 x 2TB Near Line SAS 6Gbps 7.2k 3.5" HD Hot Plug. I need atleast 8TB storage. Planning to use RAID 10.
- Typical file size range: 100KB - 1MB
