Anyone have ideas on 14 spindles?  I just ordered a disk subsystem
with 14 high speed (U320 15kRPM) SCSI disks to hook up with a dell
PERC3/DC controller (only 128MB cache, though).

My plan was to do RAID10, but I think I'll play with RAID5 again and
see which gives me the best performance.  Unfortunatly, it is
difficult to recreate the highly fragmented tables I have now (vacuum
full takes over 14 hours on one of the tables) so I'm not sure how to
best compare them.
