you can check with your local vendors...

there are many SSD's now a days in the market... you can check with Dell or HP as well they have good support and replacement warranty...

check the support agreement befor you buy...

To simply answer the question, yes there is.

Newegg.com even has a Enterprise SSD catagory: http://www.newegg.com/Enterprise-SSD/SubCategory/ID-2021

Of course there are enterprise SSDs, see the ones under datacenter at http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/solid-state-drives/ssd-help-me-choose.html for example. Endurance is much higher due to either using SLC rather than MLC or having spare chips or both, garbage collection is generally internal rather than needing TRIM and there should be a temperature sensor. Beware putting non-enterprise SSDs in servers as the fans may go full blast if the sensor doesn't match what the controller expects to see.

There are also PCIe based SSDs for servers so that you're not restricted by the SAS/SATA bus, see http://www.fusionio.com/products/iodrive-octal/ for example, they're about the price of a small house.

Not true at all about being the price of a small house :). I have been pricing these out to provide a tiered storage solution  using partitioning in my SQL environment, which is how I came across these.  Another fun fact about the PCIe SSDisks is the latency being considerably lower.
