Re: Hard Drive Speed



But of course one of the easiest and cheapest ways to get more performance is RAID.

Mirror two disks for almost double the read performance. Use three or four disks in raid5 for an almost linear increase in speed per spindle.

Depending on how much more performance you need, you can check out:
* alternate filesystems. They're usually well-suited for a particular 
* high-end HDs, e.g. 10,000+ RPM. These can improve your performance 
* solid state HDs. These have no moving parts, and thus the seek times
