Vendors are speaking more and more to the benefits of SSD's at different levels of the organization -- not just for user machines, but also at the server level and for storage arrays. What's your take? Do you see solid state drives as an eventual standard for the enterprise environment? If no, why?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If they can get the costs down to a reasonable level, and fix the problem will cells failing after a specific number of writes, then yes.

    I agree...I think the technology is promising. The price is still going to have to come down though.

    We use HP's OEM version of the Fusion-IO product in several blade servers for some specific latency sensitive applications. The initial shipments had some firmware issues but the current product seems rock solid now for about 6 months. The performance is phenomenal, in particular the latency which is typically < 1ms and maxes out at about 2ms in heavy usage. Cost for 80GB is about $4K but easily justified as it really makes the application feasible. As for what I would like to see, give me an Infiniband connected sharable SSD array with remote replication capability for DR.
