I am not sure we have money for 10K RPM scsi disks, much less 15K RPM. The
issue is space.. The 300GB SCSI disks are about 4 times the cost of 7.2K RPM
IDEs. The 10K RPM IDE Raptors only go to 150GB..
I think we can either go RAID 10 with 7.2K RPM 300GB IDE or RAID 5 with 10K
RPM 145GB disks. I am hoping raid 5 with 7 spindles, plus going to SCSI,
would make up for using raid 5 instead of 10.
