SATA drive reccomendations for reliablity (server use)
I have two servers that I will buy two to six drives a piece for
(each). I'm thinking 750gb is the sweet spot for storage prices.
I know everyone has had a drive go bad. I'm not interested in endless
stories of how yours was bad, how you lost your lifes work, or why
you'll never buy from vendor X just to spite them.
I'm looking for larger scale independent third party testing and
certification of SATA and SATA II drives released on the market,
geared for server use. I want to use this to make a comparison of
where price, performance, and reliablity make the best for our needs.
If any of the existing hardware matters, here is the hardware I am
considering for running XEN. I haven't decided if I will stick with
the etch kernel, or jump into a newer mainline release.
