SSD RAID: Do You Want A Cheap Array Or One Larger Drive?

Benchmark Results: 512 KB Random Reads/Writes

Testing random reads and writes with a block size of 512 KB is an important scenario, as average file sizes have been increasing over time.

Random 512 KB reads still happen faster on the Zalman N-series SSD than on any of the two RAID setups based on the 30 GB SSDs.

The same results apply to 512 KB random writes.
