some quick opinions please. I run 3 Proxmox servers in a cluster. Each is a HP Elitedesk G1 i7 CPU with 32Gb RAM. They’re entry level and don’t use much power. I config’d each to host 2 x 2.5" 128gb SSD’s (RAID1) to run the OS and a single 6Tb WD Red NAS drive for the VM’s. There is also a Proxmox Backup server running on a HP Microserver Gen8 so losing a 6Tb WD NAS drive isn’t too much of a biggie.
One of the Proxmox nodes has dropped an SSD so it’s OS drives are degraded. I noticed recently that another node is showing SMART wear levels of 28% and 32% for it’s not that old Kingston SSD’s
You opinion please for long wearing with reasonable performance 2.5" SSD’s?
Samsung, Kingston, Corsair, Crucial, Sandisk, Other?, Other2?
there are a zillion websites reviewing SSD drive performance. I’d like a “real-world” opinion on this. With the Jolly Fat Man on the way the purse strings are a little tight… but Black Friday sales are around the corner.
