Not Ready for Prime time?
The way this market demands the latest and greatest even if the claim to fame seems to be go faster stripes if SSD's were that good spin disks would be getting harder to find by now. This isn't the first time we have seen "superior" hardware flounder around and fail to launch. I don't think SSD's are quite ready for prime time and definitely not in a server environment. They are great every where but reliability or durability. They really are great right up to the point where they instantly drop dead and kill your data. The chips still only have so many read-write cycles in them before they crap out. When you see SSD's incorporating some of the latest transistor technology which is a self repairing design then they would be worth having and in fact could finally and truly be superior to conventional platter type disks. Personally I won't bother with swapping things over until they are.
