- FLASH media costs more then hard disk platers. Reliable FLASH-based
SSD costs much more then hard disks, at similar capacities.
- If consumer-grade hard disks cost about 7.5 cents per GB - consumer-grade
SSDs cost about 1.5$ per GB.
and these are not enterprise-grade SSDs (nor enterprise-grade HDDs).
- As a result, putting all of your data on SSDs is very expensive.
- Especially when considering an enterprise with hundreds of TB of data.
