We have been toying with the idea of updating our server that runs our production software with solid state hard drives. But wow the price of the enterprise drives seem outrageous. Is there a good priced drives (around $200) that could be used in a raid to achieve an increase in speed without breaking the bank. I have been looking at the Corsair drives on Amazon and wondering if we can make those work in someway, or in a server are they going to last a week then give out.
And if one does give out is it going to be easy to to replace the drive. Just looking for ideas and experience to help formulate a plan.
We have a poweredge 2950 with windows 2003 64bit wtih 6x146 15k drives.
