I need some help designing/choosing a really fast storage system. I am working with a specialized engineering camera that is outputing raw imagary at ~40GB/min. I need a storage system that can hold an hour of it's video, and be able to write at the consistant speeds needed for that entire hour(~700+MB/s). I was thinking of utilizing a RAID 5 setup with 8 512GB SSD's (Samsung 840 Pros). But wasn't sure what enclosure and what method of transfer to get the video data from the processing PC to the storage enclosure.
I dont think 8 drives will sustain or even hit that write speed, not in raid5. You probably need to up to a 16 drive raid 10 if you want redundancy or 8 drive raid 0 if you dont care about the possibility of loosing data.
