Transition away from RAID to single SSD, what to consider
Posted on 2011-09-16
Mosting wondering about errors, in general. In considering moving away from RAID and instead using a single SSD on my SBS 2008, the first thing I wonder about are errors. The last 4 years with this current set up, I don't know of any errors, other than my RAID failing last year. What I am thinking about are whatever errors I am reading about. There is something I am still foggy on with regard to errors. The database seems to work fine and all the apps. Is there something about an SSD that may generate errors that don't typically occur in a standard HD's in RAID array? My basic plan is to have Acronis keep a constant (every 15 minutes) incremental backup that can be bare metal restored in a couple hours. I think that is realistic and we can do with 2 hours downtime, no problem. Will that eliminate any concerns I may have have SSD errors? I have zero problem with losing 15 minutes of data.
