remember that the SFF (Small Form Factor) SAS drives are only 10K RPM, so
you will want to stay away from them (my opinion) and stay with the regular
SAS drives which run at 15K RPM.

It's not that easy. I never had my hands on an IBM i that would fit
SFF drives, but the 10kRPM SFF drives in the System x world have
comparable performance to 15kRPM LFF drives. Of course, the 15kRPM SFF
drives are even faster. This is mostly owed to the higher data
density.
