Solid State Silliness

Jeff Darcy:

[…] progress always comes from those who actually think about how to use the Hot New Thing to complement other approaches instead of expecting one to supplant the other completely. So it is with SSDs, which are a great addition to the data-storage arsenal but cannot reasonably be used as a direct substitute either for RAM at one end of the spectrum or for spinning disks at the other. Instead of putting all data on SSDs, we should be thinking about how to put the right data on them. As it turns out, there are several levels at which this can be done.

This sounds more reasonable to me than the whole RAM is the new disk direction some products are evangelizing.
