When you are to compare specs for SSDs or HDD's for that matter to be
used in a remote storage what do you consider most important? Max
read/write MB/s or read/write IOPS?

Personally I should think when we are looking at SSD's max read/write
MB/s is irrelevant since the network will always be the bottleneck
(AFAIK no network is cable of providing throughput > 400 MB/s) so I
would compare read/write IOPS instead.
