What would be faster? 4 SATA SSDs on 2 SAS ports or 4 SATA SSDs on 1 SAS port?
It might be a rhetorical question I am asking here, but I am building a rig with 4 Crucial M4 256GB SATA SSDs that will be connected to a RocketRaid 2720 which has 2 SAS ports. I bought 2 '4xSATA to SAS' cables and was wondering what would be faster: All those 4 SATA SSDs connected to 1 SAS port, or divide them between the 2 SAS ports, so 2 SSDs for each port? I assume to divide them would be faster, or am I wrong? The setup will run a RAID10 configuration. Thanks
