Hi all, anyone had experience with these SSD'd, I heard the 1500 controller wasnt going to be manufactured.
I have been given the go ahead to get one of these for our Database data files and doc management data to speed up access, looking for info!

I don't know a lot about them, apart from that they are the pretty much the fastest SSDs you can buy...

I wonder how fast they are to break

Indeed - I can certainly see the advantage of using SSD's for database I/O, but from what I know of Sandforce, it's bleeding edge tech; not sure if I'd be putting it in a production server?

I'm sure Sol will test thoroughly however.

Hehe....Just wait to get this baby is.....currently 758 connections to the database server, I have just expanded the RAID 10 array to 6 disks, however random read for these documents is pants, especially when they are encrypted and get transferred to another database before presentation to the user. It is not a highly updated database, so replication to another partition, and nightly backups will keep me safe....
