Shows you how far SSDs have come....considering current PCI-E drives have no issue hitting that in the right conditions. ;)

I'd like to see the same experiment done with modern hardware.

My two chronos deluxe in raid hit 900MB/s. I'd love what 24 on a ridiculously unaffordable raid controller can do.

Z-Drive R4 CloudServ


6GB/s (not Gb, GB!)

I would be interested in seeing small file performance on those. I find even with SSDs the more you add to RAID array the slower the small files move in a single user benchmark scenario.

This is an old video but fascinating nonetheless. I wonder what it would be like if they used more recent SSD...

The RAID has redundancy and it will recover the data once the defective SSD has been replaced.
