SSD for OS drive, HDD for data drive/audio files.

Don't buy the cheap ones. They will fail. Higher end Intel is good.

Better yet, buy two SSDs, clone it with Clonezilla, have a backup on the shelf.

SSD’s are fine. Set it up in the RAID of your choice. If one fails, replace. Unless you plan to have the server for YEARS, you shouldn’t run into a read/write limit. They’re there for sure, but SSD’s are much better able to handle those compared to when this was a real issue years ago. Don’t fret about it at all, seriously. If you can afford it, get the best you can that fits your environment.

Mark,

 

From what I’ve read, SSDs (solid state drive) are a great idea for your main OS and program files.  However, for audio/data that changes every day, it’s better to stay with HDD (hard drive).  SSDs don’t do well with a lot of re-writes of files.

 

Thank you for your support!

Who has moved from hard disks to SSDs in automation? Good idea? Bad idea? Pros and cons?
