comment Would using SAS disks instead of SATA disks make sense over NFS for a VMWare datastore?
tomshardware.com/reviews/short-stroking-hdd,2157.html There are some numbers showing that short stroking can give better performance. It also shows that short stroking a SAS drive can also still do better than SATA if you can spare the capacity. Today though I wouldn't bother with mechanical SAS drive at all. Going SSD is much better and comparable price wise.

Also if you short stroke your SAS drive by a bit you could also jump over any benefit of short stroking a SATA drive. It comes down to the work load and how much you want to pay for performance.

Of course price wise now a days you're better off with SSD over mechanical SAS if you really need the heavy random I/O workload performance.
