Caught some sales, and used S3500s from ebay for my flash tier.
No issues building, no issues saturating 10gige.
I need to benchmark some lightroom workloads on my local NVMe vs remote flash and remote HDD and see if I can literally work straight off of the NAS vs needing larger local SSD storage on my box.
SSDs are in raid z1 HDDs are in raid z2
Have plex and a few other 24x7 VMs running...wanted something nice and low-power to host that.
