I saw the article today titled "How Fast Is Thunderbolt, Really? Tom's Tests With 240 TB". It seems the array can provide faster sequential read and write performance than SSD. What about random read and write performance? I am working in a network setting that requires fairly fast random read speed, we currently have a 8-HDD array (Firewire 800) for storage, SSD was considered but later ruled out because of reliability issue. Array multiple SSDs was not an option either due to cost. Do you think that by upgrading the current Firewire disk array to a Thunderbolt disk array like the Lacie would improve random read performance if all disks used are HDD?
