What are the merits of SAS vs SATA drives?
Would it be OK to use a SATA 6Gb/s desktop drive in a server? Say for example a 4 Seagate ST31000524AS drives in a raid 10 array.
I will be using NexentaCE. I will be using a 240Gb SSD as a L2ARC cache (read) to the RAID array. I will be using a smalled SSD as a ZIL for the write cache.
I cannot find any 1TB Constellation drives for reasonable prices anymore.
