Alright here are my current benches of my 4 Seagate Barracudas 7200.12 500 Gb in RAID 0.
I figured I try an SSD if it will be a noticeable upgrade from what I have or I might just get some faster hard drives in put them in RAID 0. One of my concerns is the random 4k write/read. Is that important to hard drives/SSD's in terms of speed/performance? Should I be focused more on that over Seq write/read? I have already noted that SSD's have virtually no latency so I have factored that in as well. I am just seeing if I can justify spending $400 on 100-128Gb over $260 on 2.5 Tb.
Since I transfer large files at most times my stripe size is 128, but I might set it to 32 or 64 if that will increase my 4K read/write Speeds (while taking a hit to my Seq read/write). I am also know with SSD's TRIM or Garbage Collection is a necessity. Please post relevant SSD's to these as well. Also for RAID 0 factors which is better: TRIM or Garbage collection or both?
Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
These are my upgrade options:
