I am looking at buying a new server that will be used as a file & storage server. it will have programs that user need, others would store large files. all my other servers have scsi 10,000 drive. would the sata drives be to slow for a file server. when my apps lab needs to pull down 1 or 2 gig files when a customers is here we dont want any slow downs, all computers in the lab have 10000 rmp hard drives. the price on sata drives is a lot less...you get what you pay for
sata vs. scsi drives

Buy more SATA drives and put them in RAID0+1 for the performance and for the redundancy. The main thing with SCSI disks is their reliability. Server drives get a LOT more usage than desktop units hence the price difference but if you can be quick with getting replacements online as one drive fails you should be able to get by.

It depends on what type of scsi drives. They might be a tad slower overall but the biggest difference you will see will be down to the physical disk performance itself rather than the bus/interface speeds.
