He's running a 20 data spindle RAID60, across two decent hardware RAID
cards each with 512MB write cache, so of course it's going to be much
faster than your 4 data spindle RAID6, even with slightly slower spindles.
Note that 8x 15K drives in RAID10 on your P410i should slightly surpass
Roger's RAID60 performance, ~70MB/s vs 66MB/s. 3x fewer drives for
roughly equal performance, but obviously less capacity.
