SATA3 vs SAS

Discussion in 'Performance Tweaking' started by SexyMime, Jul 27, 2013.

  1. What are you opinions on these harddrives for minecraft server hosting? Whats better and why?
     
  2. SAS - higher 15k RPM in comparison to regular SATA3 HDD which run 7.2k RPM.
     
  3. Just got this server hoping to run +-8 servers off it, with +-450-600 online, would this have no lag?

    Intel Xeon E5-2670 4x2(HT)x2.6 (3.6 GHZ Turbo)
    2x 2 To SATA3
    128 Go

    The SATA3 will be slower compared to a SSD in loading chunks and booting/rebooting the server.
     
  5. Well, you may want to upgrade your go....

  6. Hope the beast like CPU compensates for that :p

    Hmmm, the storage is a big factor. Doesn't really relate, but I replaced my Mechanical hard drive in my computer with a SSD. It felt like a brand new machine. They make a difference :D
     
  8. Ive been using normal Sata3 all my life, and seems to work well for 400 online. Will test shortly when i get 600 on the new box.

    Let us know how it goes. When you get an SSD, you can't go back.
