Looking forward to seeing the benchmark results. Is it possible for us to purchase the chassis ourselves?
Also happy to connect you directly if you want to PM me your contact info.

I'd like to see if Shogun2 Total War loading times are faster using this array.
In fact what you could do are some ridiculous comparisons, of this ludicrous array against a single sata mech HDD. Some ideas: Windows install time on a VM, data copy time.
Sure some business related benchmarks of journaled database would be more serious and professorial looking, but...I already know what the results would be. What I like to see is the fun angle.

We're thrilled to have this rig in the office as part of our expanding array testing. If you have questions or requests please post them here.

About to add some updates today. This past week we received all of our InfiniBand networking gear and are prepping HP DL380p servers with Windows Server 2012 for testing. Looking to get the InfiniBand side going today for some baseline tests.
