I've got 24x2TB SAS drives. I'm getting 193MB/s out of my setup (with about 10 VMs idling). 40 gig NICs are getting dirt cheap. I wants them. Ain't no point to buying them when I can't saturate a 10 gig link, though. When I put this together, I figured that I needed about 35TB of space. Turns out, I could be perfectly happy with 20TB. So, let's talk about reconfiguring this beastie to get me the best speed. How do I find out what my bottleneck is?

Usage:
1) Datastore for 10-20 VMs.
2) Storage space for ISOs, documents, movies, etc. I've got everything on here, and I access it daily - mostly streaming video.

I've got a backup solution, so don't worry 'bout that. I just need speed and a little bit of uptime protection. ZFS on CentOS 7, in a VM with 2vCPUs (E3) and 8GB RAM allocated to it. LSI 2308 passed through.

You should be able to get 24x100MB/s from your hard drives. Maybe you should access them differently.
