Emmanuel do you recall which SSD you used here? 7500 IOPS is very low
by today's standards. What I'm wondering is if you had an older low
IOPS SSD, or, a modern high IOPS rated SSD that performed way below its
specs in this application.
The Samsung 840 Pro I recommended is rated at 90K 4K write IOPS and
actually hits that mark in IOmeter testing at a queue depth of 7 and
Its processor is a 3 core ARM Cortex R4 so it should excel in this RAID
cache application, which will likely have gobs of concurrency, and thus
a high queue depth.
Found a review of CacheCade 2.0. Their testing shows near actual SSD
throughput. The Micron P300 has 44K/16K read/write IOPS and their
testing hits 30K. So you should be able to hit close to ~90K read/write
IOPS with the Samsung 840s.
