Hi Goran, hi all, could you please clarify: 50-60 MBytes/s or 50-60 Mbits/s? 50-60 MBytes/s would give 400-500 Mbits/s, so that would mean that a Gigabit connection could increase the throughput by a factor of 4-5, in an ideal world, correct? What is the situation for an IDE RAID array? Is there any hope to get a 1-TB fileserver for less than $10^4 that gives I/O speeds > 1 Gbit/s? Chris? Others?
