Best solution for write intensive apps

By dmaster ·
I just want to ask a question about storage.
What is the best storage solution (in term of hardware and configuration) for a PC based video surveillance application?
My app writes constantly frame by frame and occasionally burst writing for certain operation. This happens for each video channel (up to 64) configured. If i want to install this on a RAID system. What RAID level is the best for constant small writes and occasional (every 5 minutes) burst in write (excluding the read operation ofthe user)?
The app change file every 5 minutes, and the writing is about 10k per frame. The app is configurable to run from 1 to 25 fps per channel up to 64 channel (never used so far...)
My worries are about fragmentation and disk accesses. Is better to use one-write large buffer instead of single 10k frames?

Thanks, sorry for my bad english.

For IO speed U320 SCSI is best. If your data is transiant RAID is not needed, however RAID 5 has the best fault tolerance.
