dont they use raptors on servers? maybe im mistaken. why would they use a HD that have a higher failure rate then one that cost less?
and the 10k would be faster. HD a limited by thier mechanical parts the faster they go the faster they operate. SATA can go to 100000 Gbps and the 10k would still beat it.
