Perfect...that is the sort of definitive answer I kept trying to find on the Net, and could not.

comment Best performance: 1tb vs larger drives in app using only sequential read/writes
I think I understand now. I will go with 48 1 tb drives, and give each 2 drives exclusively. I have 2 follow-on questions regarding data stripe size and multiple raid0 controllers which I will ask in a new question. Thanks for your help. Now back to my hover board design...

Excellent point...But why use RAID0? If my 24 threads need to read 1 tb sequentially (and of course simultaneously), are you saying using 12 2tb drives under RAID0 would be just as fast as 24 1tb drives without RAID0?

Are you getting real-world thruput of 500Mbytes/sec? Ie, it will read a 1tb file in ~33 minutes?

comment Best way to attach 96 tb to workstation
I'm not familiar with Windows Server at all. I will look into it. Also, what do you mean by enterprise drives? Are they made by the same companies that make the cheap ones (WD, Seagate, etc)?
