Solid State Drive (SSD) and Server Hardware

SSD will make big difference in Enterprise computing as it is moved beyond first generation For ex 1G SSD from MTRON 100MB/sec and write speed of >80 MB/sec ( I didn't consider other big players like TMS (Texas Memory Systems) they are niche but not viable for small and medium businesses) will itself is better compare to the mechanical platter based disks except for the price premium. Later this year 2008 Server vendor like HP, Dell, IBM, Sun Microsystem will offer server platform utilizing SSDs capabilities. We gain
1. Very fast read access
2. Better write performance
Which will make
1. High Performance
2. High reliability
3. increased Throughput
So probably hardware vendor at least should give options to go for SSD for the above reasons.
