And if you want disk space and are serving across a 1Gbit ethernet link,
you don't give a damn about spindles and go for cheap abundant storage,
which means SATA.

Not everyone is running a database server.  Some people just have files.

Raid5/6 of a few SATA drives can easily saturate 1Gbit.  And for a very
small fraction of the cost of SAS drives.
