If I have (12) SSD drives in a RAID6, will the max connection speed of each drive be 6Gbps, or is that for the entire controller?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

The 6gbs specification is per channel. So depending on the controller it can be per drive, yes. However your controller will not manage the theoretical maximum speed of 12 combined disks in raid 6.
