Hi, I've been seeing a good deal on Intel's 530 Series SSD drives. I was just wondering if anyone here has had any previous experiences with this drive on server environments for KVM virtualization to host several Virtual Machines or any other server usage with any RAID setup of 4-6 drives?
Is just that an increasing number of client/workstation users are experiencing warm boot/restart probles on this drive and Intel has come forward saying the have successfully re-produced the problem and are working on a new firmware that will take time.
I do not know if this could also be a real problem on servers and RAID environments? Which is what I want them for. $170.00 price tag seems tempting for such a brand name.
Based on the experience and confirmation from Intel who can reproduce the issue, it doesn't sound too good.
We haven't yet put them in production, although we have used the Intel 520's and they are great. Let's hope Intel comes with a fix soon
