The Right Solid-State Drive (SSD) Matters
For some IT professionals, there’s confusion over solid-state drives (SSDs). Some have the impression that they’re all created equal with no real difference between them because they’re only flash memory. That is not the case.
The way an SSD is built for client machines like a notebook or desktop (a daily work device) versus how an SSD is built for a data center application is vastly different. The workloads are very different. A server workload usually maintains 100-percent duty cycle 24 hours a day, seven days a week, year-round. But when we work on our computers throughout the day, even on a virtual machine, we’re only using minimal resources with a lot of idle time.
