I remember the last time someone tried to breed Velociraptors..

If they put 8-16GB of NAND on it and keep it at 10k rpm, I would consider buying it. The 7200rpm Seagate hybrid drive did reasonabily well against the current gen VRaptors.

Sorry, I've used both a VR drive and SSDs on my server (24/7 use), and SSDs take the cake by a large margin. Even under constant usage, the SSD remained at least 1000% faster than the VR drive.

What do you mean 24/7 use? Leaving it on 24/7 doesn't mean 24/7 use. Non-stop constant reading and writing 24/7 is 24/7 use.

1000% faster? Seems more fiction than fact, when SSDs are actually slower than HDDs when it comes to uncompressable writes, unless you're using one a 240GB version and up or one of those MAX IOPS editions.
Shhhhh!

most mechanical drives get less then 1MB/s with 4k read/writes, a good SSD may get 40 - 80 times that. Ill stake my X25-E's against your raptors any day of the week

I still use my Raptor X and love it.

My only problem is they tend to be bloody noisy.

And if he's not using a Sandforce drive, because they're the only SSD that does that compression thing? Then he destroys the HDDs speed.

Constant reading and writing at a rate of 2MB/s on average (peaks up to 8 or 9MB/s sometimes). I'm running the minecraft server, and there is a lot of data that is saved as soon as it happens (i.e., as soon as a block is broken or placed).

The VR drive scored at about 400KB/s 4KB writes while the server was running on it, whereas the Callisto Deluxe scored at about 22.5MB/s 4KB writes while the server was running on it. Even the Vertex (original) scored somewhere around 2MB/s 4KB writes with the server running on it.

And now looking at the numbers again, you're right, it WAS fiction. The Callisto Deluxe outperforms the VR drive by more than 5000%.

I don't know what part of the data is compressible or not, and frankly, I don't care. That's just a benchmark stat. Real-world usage is what counts. And real world usage shows me that, for my server, an SSD can meet the demands I place on it, while a VR drive cannot.

All four of the SSDs are Sandforce, though the oldest one, the original Vertex, proved to be insufficient for my needs. It was still faster than the VR though, which proved to be even more insufficient.

Data manipulation.. is just that. If you don't understand that most people today use raids because of nostalgia, instead of logic.. then I fear you're in for an awakening.
