    The SSD Holy Grail Is On My Desk

    Maybe not the actual holy grail, but it's pretty good...

    I heard this was also for Witcher III storage!

    Yeah.. For our usage, the extra performance/over provisioning wouldn't even come close to justifying the cost in our scenario. But I wouldn't say no if they landed on my desk..

    From past experience there isn't a huge difference. More over provisioning and faster controller with SAS instead of SATA is the main thing, Obviously cost difference is the big thing.

    I'm just waiting for our eval netapp device to be installed at the moment, 2PB of all flash storage using 15TB SSD but that will be supporting hundreds of servers over 40gb FC. Don't want to think about what the bill would be for that one. Production storage later this year should have moved to 30TB drives.

    We couldn't quite stretch to enterprise level. But I figure, if the worst happens, I've got backups and all of the VMs replicated elsewhere

    Good for virtualisation as well, lol

    We've got some enterprise flash drives on order at the moment for a CoreOS Tectonic install. Should be arriving in a couple weeks.

    Generally the advantage of SSD on servers (which you mention as the destination for this) is going to be for apps that are going to be doing a lot of local processing, e.g. databases.

    Where SSD can help on file sharing are when you have compression turned on. And if it matters, storage density.

    Not really. I think you're just too used to the latest and greatest..
