    Seagate Enterprise Turbo SSHD Review « Storage Review

    Seagate makes a bold claim with the Enterprise Turbo SSHD, "The World’s Fastest Hard Drive." Normally, storage companies like to use a bit of bravado as part of their marketing claims, but saying "World's Fastest" is pretty strong. Here's the thing though, they're right. The Turbo is absolutely smoking and the results trounced Seagate's own 10K SAS drives, which posted over 200% gains in some cases. For enterprises looking to refresh an array but don't have the budget or IOPS/latency need for an all flash solution, the Turbo is the superior choice.

    I'm very strongly against using RAID 5 (as others on here can attest) except for secondary backup storage where a failure doesn't have much of an impact. RAID10 is best where maximum performance and reliability are needed (e.g. VDI / Core Infrastructure). If more cost-effective storage is required over RAID10, then Use RAIDZ3 or RAIDZ2 or RAID6, in that order of preference. ZFS takes care of the write penalty for parity writes BTW.
