Solid-state drives (SSDs) typically have been used in situations in which applications required high data throughput or very high transaction rates between a server and the storage media. However, they are now being eyed for broader usage scenarios, because of their myriad of cost-saving benefits.
Specifically, IT administrators are under increased pressure in today’s tough economic times to help the organizations they serve rein in costs wherever possible. As such, they are being called upon to make more-efficient use of IT resources, lower power consumption, and reduce operating expenses across the board.
