I'm doing some tinkering with large data -- where I may need several terabytes of storage.
I want to understand what the performance difference between a SATA based JBOD and a fiber core base u320 SCSI is -- NOTE I will probably end up using PCI-X based cards as the pci-express based cards are still pretty pricy.
I didn't even know SCSI still existed until today. I thought most everything now was either USB or eSATA.
I don't know where you're going to find hard drives that big or with that interface even. You could probably get a few 3TB hard drives and some sort of hot-swapping mechanism that will work with that (like maybe the Corsair Obsidian 800D which allows for hot-swapping hard drives). That's probably my best guess.
