High performance, high capacity, high number of disks and hotplug capability are quite common demands for storage. For high performance the first thought is NVMe. But when it comes to number of disks say dozens or hundreds or hotplug capability you may consider 2x12G Multipath SAS or 24G SAS in future.

Quite common choices for SAS disks are the affordable Samsung 1643, the WD SS 530 (quite the best SAS SSD, but EoL with the newer SS540 hard to find) and the Seagate Nytro 3732 as an alternative.
