The 320 series drives are not intended for things that write as heavily
as you do. If your database is growing fast enough that you're going to
hit a terabyte in a short period of time, just cross that right off the
list of possibilities. Intel's 710 series is the one aimed at your sort
You can probably pull down the total write volume on your system by more
aggressively running VACUUM FREEZE shortly after new data is loaded.
PostgreSQL tends to write blocks even in INSERT-only tables several
times; forcing them to freeze early can eliminate several of them.
