I'm not going to give up my SCSI myths too quickly.<g>
I would like to know more about the rotational speed, # of platters, total capacity, i/o parameters, useage (db vs. file share vs. near-line storage, etc.) of the various drives first.
In addition, it would be very interesting to see which drive "types" died more often due to component and logic failure as opposed to "shedding" media.
Having said all that, I'm happier about specing some SATA rigs for my less affluent customers.
Were there any SAS drives in this mix? I am trying to download the study, but the server keeps timing out. If the answer is in it, "never mind."
