My question is does the date rate of storage devices either the HDD or SSD affect the IO's of the device? An example is this: let us talk SSD's have extremely high IO's. but about the same data rate of an HDD. If large files were being stored or transferred does this limit the IO's? If a device has a sustained data rate of 350 MgB/s and it is storing many large files say 1 MgB each then can it only do 350 a second??

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.

By "IO's [sic]" do you mean the number of I/O operations? " let us talk SSD's have extremely high IO's. but about the same data rate of an HDD." - This is probably a faulty statement, and therefore a flawed premise for your follow-on questions. And there are no units called "MgB/s" or "MgB". –  sawdust Nov 18 '12 at 22:56
