I find your tone annoying.  That you do not have access to this level of
hardware proves nothing, other than pointing out that your repeated
emails on this list are based on supposition.

If you want 1GB/sec STR you need:

1) 1 or more Itanium CPUs
2) 24 or more disks
3) 2 or more SATA controllers
4) Linux

Have fun.
