Don't want to fork out for NAND flash? You're not alone. Disk still rules

Re: Throughput

Flash is a _part_ of the answer. The rest of the answer is moving to smaller form factor drives (use 2.5" disks instead of 3.5" ones), and the biggest part of the answer is to switch to a post-RAID technology like ZFS, with appropriately sized vdevs (i.e. don't have more than, say, a 6-disk RAID6 (RAIDZ2), or 11 disk RAIDZ3 (n+3)). if you need a bigger pool, have multiple such vdevs (equivalent of 12 disk RAID60).
