I want to have access to a ~50GB Lotus Notes database on a portable device. The database is in NSF format and contains about 150k documents. I would use the search functions a lot to find and locate files. Means a lot of (random?) I/O
My laptop is a X201, sadly a bit dated. USB3 is not built into the X201, I'd use a Seagate USB3 Express Card.
I want to explore these options, happy to hear any other suggestions:
a) 64/120GB SSD via USB3
64/128GB USB3 memory stick (I/O questionable)
c) 64/128GB fast SD Card via the built-in card reader (I'd love this if the I/O performance would be good enough)
d) copy the file onto the HDD (not possible)
So, I assume random access is vastly better on a SSD vs SD card vs USB memory stick.
AHappy to hear any thoughts, suggestions, etc..THANKS!
