So my recently ordered MP will be my office's "mother server", onto which our "mission critical" software program will reside. Other iMac workstations will be accessing the software's database from the MP. I was surely going to install a large SSD as the system/program drive, but also have a second internal HD. The database isn't too large, and should easily fit along with the OS on a larger SSD, say a 500-600GB. I thought I was all set, but then I started reading about a seemingly disproportionate number of failure rates among some SSDs. I was close to purchasing the largest OWC Mercury SSD, but decided against it for the above reason. I'm looking at Intel SSDs not, in particular the 320 Series 300GB model. A friend of mine, however, believes that a SSD would have limited benefits in my application since the bottleneck is not really disk access. Rather, it is the limitations of the gigabit ethernet network (which probably isn't running at true gigabit speeds). Sooo . . . a few questions: 1. Is the above statement true (more or less) 2. Are SSDs as reliable or more reliable than your typical 7200RPM drive manufactured by Seagate or WD? (Or in terms of reliability, is it a wash)?
