what do you think of solid state hard drives? the next big thing in server hardware? no moving parts meaning more reliable. they obviously may not be as fast as a raid array of 15k scsi hdds but one day im 110% sure they will, we never thought hard drives would be as advanced as they are today.
Im currently using a solid state drive in my netbook and its great
Just doesn't seem ready for prime time hosting yet. I don't think you can get the performance out of the drives.
Very much seems to be a "netbook" type of technology. I'm sure they will turn the corner eventually but I don't think we're there yet.
Definitely not, but very interesting none the less..
I think with the whole "eco" approach companies like Google and Microsoft are taking now, the solid state drives, once they improve on throughput and capacity will be fantastic for efficiency and stability.
