I understand all of the differences of SAS and SATA interfaces and drives... but an looking for some real world advice...
In a 3-drive RAID 0 set-up, would there be an appreciable difference between 15k rpm SAS drives and 10k rpm SATA drives? Or would the interface become the limiting factor since the RAID 0 set-up is effectively increasing the overall read-write performance by writing 1/3 of the data to each drive?
I know in a single drive to single drive comparison that the SAS 15k would probably show better read-write times... but in the RAID 0 3-drive set-up described above, would there still be a difference? And if so, would it be noticable and worth the higher price?
Any links to real world comparisons of SAS/SATA in RAID 0 set-ups would be greatly appreciated.
