I am putting together a Server which will act as a Domain Controller. I chose a HP ProLiant DL360 G7 Server, HP gives me an option for a 60GB SSD drive (HP 60GB Hot Plug 3G SATA SFF MDL Solid State) which costs around $1000.00.
I used SSD drives for Desktop systems and I am really happy with it. I am expecting much better performance and a much longer drive lifetime for the server using a SSD drive. Would you agree or do you see any downsides besides the high price tag? I requested more specific's about the drive from HP but I assume it's a top of the line Intel Drive. I'll post the drive details once HP get's back to me.
Please give me your thoughts.
