I agree here with Christopher; A SSD to handle the high IOPS requirements
of real time data logging; combined with a scheduled transfer which can
"move" the stored data in a linear large block copy operation to ordinary
spindles, would be a cost effective hybrid solution.

This of course is assuming the application can handle this separation of
data; and I know nothing about Nfsen
