Solid State Storage Deep Dive

If you have ever wanted to know how SSD's and Flash memory works this talk is for you. We will cover the fundamentals of Flash in detail. I will also highlight some of the specific vendor implementations and what makes a particular SSD "enterprise ready" vs "Consumer grade". We will also cover SQL Server usage patterns what is a good fit for SSD's and when it may be better to go with hard disks. Solid State Storage isn't a cure-all for every situation, this presentation will give you the tools you need to make the right choice for your SQL Server environment.
