This is very interesting.

I 2nd Rob's point about performance, out of this world compared to old spinny disk.

So does this mean the SSD will eventually "wear out"?
So what would be the normal life expectancy for a SSD, 3, 5, 10 years?
Could this be why there is a high maintenance charge on SSD, spinny had no maintenance?

Interesting read...

I wonder how/if the same issues apply to IBM i with its SLS.

Given that SLS treats disk more like memory...it would seem that SSDs would be even better suited to SLS than spinies.
