if your working set is small enough

My working set, so-to-speak, is now so small that I do not need anywhere near the IO power as I did back then. A single 7200 rpm SATA drive would be enough. I am putting in the two 72 GByte 10,000 rpm SCSI drives to make it easier to recover the files. And if they are working OK, I might as well use them for something. All it will take, if they still work, is an Ultra/320 PCIe controller card.

That will also drive my VXA2 tape drive where all my backups are. (I can always read them on my other machine that has the same type drive, and data link the stuff over if necessary.)
