It's not worth the cost and delivers the same performance as a SAN. They're up to a just over a gig (iirc) and can only be used in RAID 0 or 1.

p.s. Yes I do regret putting tempdb on a couple of these.

Me: But that line says you can ;-)

Does anybody still believe this BS that they keep sprouting. Why is it so difficult to be honest?
As much as it pains me....

I just wanted to know how they'd reduce my Orange bill! I must admit that she started getting touchy when I use false and advertising at the same time.
