run doth not equal capacity :D

Point taken, a 1TB/sec drive, that would put a new spin on "Gone in 60 seconds";)

re: GOogle report:

re: 1TB drives, Hitachi has announced 960GB usable disk space (though marketed as 1TB) single disk drive 7200rpm should be available for purchase around august, september.

Seagate's working on squeezing more GB per plate so that they can achieve a "true 1TB" usable space (maybe market it as 1.1TB?) that's the rumour i think. it will most likely be more like 990GB usable space or somn stupid like that. should be available for purchase december 07 into spring of 08 for cheaper prices.

all sata BTW as sas will take probably 5-10 years to reach such a large disk size @10,000rpm or 15,000rpm.

initially, price of the hitachi is $600ish MSRP, seagates is comparable, but by late '07 hitachi should inch closer to $500 or close to 400 with rebates, etc. seagates will debut late 07 and be close to 400-500 by summer of 08 or maybe winter. by then, 1TB drives will be flooding the market =D.

even if you have a 4port raid0 (not that you should do it, but technicall you could) you can get 3.7ish TB of usable space. if you're crazy and have 8port or 16, 24ports you can have close to just as many TB's in raid6 even! i just can't imagine the rebuild time if 1 disk dies.
bow wow wow
