Super interesting discussion about going with all SSDs in servers, ditching both spinning hard drives and hardware RAID cards. I hadn't thought we were there yet, but Chong Lee (cwl@apaqdigital on the forum linked to), who is making the case, is a giant supplier of custom servers (he built our server) and just incredibly knowledgable. His data shows that it's time on all counts: cost, performance, and reliability. At least for some use cases. I'm sold. Now if I could just afford a new server. I'd love to not have to worry about drives, and worse, the RAID card. Man, if that thing failed it would be a disaster.
