Solid State Disks (SSDs) have recently emerged as a mainstream storage alternative to traditional Hard Disk Drives (HDDs) and vendors are now producing SSDs for servers that provide huge improvements in I/O performance whilst also reducing heat & energy consumption.
In this session, Greg Linwood describes how this technology works and what types of SQL Server workloads can leverage the maximum potential from SSDs, based on experiences with several real world business critical SQL Server systems that have been successfully implemented on SSDs.
