Comparing Speed Difference using 10K or 15K SAS Drives in IBM Servers
Posted on 2014-07-16
Can someone shoot me there opinion on 10K to 15K SAS Drives in a IBM Servers
I am looking at putting some Upgraded drives into a x3550 and a x3650 M2
We can get some 900GB 10k Drives at a good price but as the x3550 and x3650 are being used to Run a Terminal Server 2008 (x3550) and 2012 (x3650) on to top of VMware ESXi i am just wondering if i will see any difference between 10K and 15K majorly.
The TS will have anywhere between 10-15 People on at max at once, so not a huge environment.
The 15K drives are smaller that i can get and more expensive so just wondering if i will see a major and noticeable difference.
I will be running them in Raid 1 on both servers
