I'm going to be doing some development work with a few databases in a regulated environment. Needless to say, I need some serious storage for running test versions. But for the reasons I won't bore you with, I'll want them just to run on my workstation. So I need an oomph workstation with a fair amount of storage. I'll build it myself so I can have my choice of components. (I'm looking at dual Opteron!)
Here's the thing. I'd prefer SCSI drives for their performance and reliability but I can't stand the noise they tend to generate. Is anyone out there acquainted with a SCSI model that runs fairly quietly? It doesn't have to be the most blazingly fast model out there; I'm willing to sacrifice some performance (though not reliability) for quiet. I do have to work near the thing. Some noise is fine. It's the high-pitched squeal I get from the drives in the server room that kills me. Failing that, does anyone have experiences, positive or negative, with the various drive-noise dampeners on the market?
