Using HP SSDs for DL360 g7
I have a couple of DL360 G7 (2 x Xeon 5606, 48Gb RAM) at the moment running 4 x 146Gb 15k SAS in RAID 10)
they will be part of the Remote Desktop Server Farm, and the first test server is running quite well.
I have an oppurtunity to buy some 100GB HP MLC Enterprise SSD drives: 636593-B21 | HP Enterprise Mainstream solid state drive - 100 GB - SATA-300 | Internal Hard Drive | Equanet
They (a pair) will work out cheaper than getting 4 x 146gb SAS on each, plus they are HP parts as well.
Only issue I have with SSDs are:
It's an MLC, so long term reliability / life uncertain
I would have 2 x 100GB SSDs running at RAID 1 (but is there any point with that?) plus do not know whether 100GB storage is enough for OS and Remote desktop
I might have 100GB for OS, 100GB for profile storage if I put the SSDs in production, and reimage them quick if they go wrong.
What do you guys think?
