Sounds like the Intel RES2SC240 SAS Expander is what you want.
Connect both ports of your M1015 to it, then connect the next 4 ports to your 16 bays.
The expander can be mounted wherever you want... and just needs a molex to power it.
Alternatively, get an LSI 16i card.
I built an ESXi + FreeNAS AIO based on an X10SDV-TLN4F and Node 304 case in this thread:
Build Report: Node 304 + X10SDV-TLN4F [ESXi/FreeNAS AIO]
With some fan upgrades, and a fan control script, noise is fine. If i was running the CPU flatout 100% of the time, I'd want to replace the built-in...
In theory (as far as I understand it) an ECC DIMM should be no more than 12.5% more expensive than the same DIMM in non-ECC, purely because for every 8 chips, there's an extra.
Where as currently you get the choice of a family car, a hot hatch (the overclocked memory), or a UNIMOG (enterprise...
Well... one disk is brand news (8 hours) and the other has been flogged.
Surely this is what you sign up for when you buy second hand enterprise SSDs?
At least the media wearout indicator is still 0.
Might as well use it in mirror until it fails, then replace.
Able to push a gig or two per second, if 33 tablets try, they'll get 30MB/s and will take 15-30 minutes to download the database.
33 users and a thread per user. It shouldn't have a problem.
I hope you have the 10gbe uplink in use.
If your 10gbe server was running with 4 interfaces on the one NIC... say within an ESXi environment... and each interfrace had a different MAC...
Or maybe with SR-IOV.
Then I'd expect the load balancing to work.
My current work stations are based on i7-6900k CPUs with all 8 cores over-clocked to 4.3ghz (280mm radiators). And stable.
Primarily used for software development, where the reasonable number of cores, but high clock speed (all broadwell cores at 4.3ghz) makes a noticeable difference. The cores...
