"There are actually standards: tpc.org/tpce is for OLTP and tpc.org/tpch is for OLAP. Somewhere in the PDF files on the right hand side of the those pages should be an I/O bandwidth summary. Maybe seek and transfer time response is in there, too, but it's probably in the results -- or worse, papers about such results. I've read all about cache response for TPC-E somewhere. I guess to do it right you would figure the premium per benchmark score difference, and use that to denominate the costs. The result should be that solid state seek (~0) and transfer (+orders of magnitude) will be vastly more important to OLTP, but the benchmark premiums should be substantial enough even for OLAP applications to become more economical with solid state much sooner.
Let me know if you can't find the figures needed and I will help. I'm very interested in this."
