Submission + - Migrating server storage to SSDs: don't do it! (acm.org) 1

An anonymous reader writes: As an IT administrator did you ever think of replacing disks by SSDs? Or using SSDs as an intermediate caching layer? A recent paper by Microsoft researchers () provides detailed cost/benefit analysis for several real workloads. The conclusion is that, for a range of typical enterprise workloads, using SSDs makes no sense in the short to medium future. Their price needs to decrease by 3-3000 times for them to make sense. Note that this paper has nothing to do with laptop workloads for which SSDs probably make more sense (due to SSDs ruggidness).
