SATA or SAS - will it matter?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

If I'm looking at a hard drive of the same capacity, same model line from the same manufacturer and they offer it in both SATA and SAS, will it matter for copying files?   I heard SAS is better if you have multiple users searching or copying more than one thing - I don't know if that is still true.   In my case these are spindle drives, they'll be connected to a high end LSI raid controller with plenty of cache.   While I occasionally search for things that aren't indexed in windows, my most intensive operation is creating large files and copying large files between servers - just one user.
