RE: Solid State Hard Drives



Hi Steve

Running sendmail, qpopper, roundcube webmail, dspam, clamav-milter on a HP
DL360 G4 with 5000 accounts and it is struggling, time for an upgrade and
looking at all options. Solid State drives are not too expensive these days,
actually comparable to fast SAS drives with high end RAID controller.

Just wondering if Solid State Drives are at mature enough and reliable
enough for this type of application. Looking for real world experience
rather than theory......


Kind regards

Hi,

I'd be interested in hearing experiences on this too, but I would think 
there would need to be a compelling reason for using them due to their 
cost alone.  Are you experiencing I/O lag with normal hard drives?
