With a few cards in it will be 2GB/s for readspeed. Which isn't bad.
With just 1 at the benchmark it achieves with 16 SSD's the 3GB/s
Which is pretty impressive.
The problem of course is the price of the drives there, 16 SSD's, if
you want to store something on
them that is, that's not cheap :)
Cheap on ebay now are 36GB and 73GB U320 disks, yet i didn't see a
cheap raid controller that can have a ton
of them AND get to 2GB/s or so.
My struggle is to get to a 60 TB raid array though, though seems i
have to wait a few years for that :)
