RE: IOPS requirements

While I will agree.. that IOPS number is going to depend on if we are talking about a single drive, Raid1(10), Raid 5, Etc... Depending on Raid level, your reads and writes are going to be handled differently thus changing the "formula" needed to calculate IOPS.

RE: IOPS requirements

I would consider it a high end drive - but I could just be saying that to protect my investment

I think 200 non-raided and with a very good controller behind it is a feasible number but it's very high for a configured drive.

I generally work with 170 - 180 in my calculations.

Controllers have there part to play in this too.
