Thanks to this article (in Norwegian), I started researching a bit about the new Intel Solid-State Drive 710 Series, which is a MLC with about 30 times improved endurance. It seems like they are really making advances. My question is, therefore, whether I can expect significant improvements in read/write performance of file servers in large companies any time soon? In other words, can this technology really convince the administrators of these servers that it beats high-end hard-disks on all levels? If not, which is the critical spots that the SSDs still need to crack to start taking off in this context?
The reason why I ask is because this could significantly change the way file servers are used.
