Boy was I surprised--not at how much faster it was but at how much faster it was not.
In fact, I noticed very little, if any, speed improvement--certainly not enough to warrant the price premium involved in leasing an SSD server.
My conclusion: save your money. Probably a "normal" server with enough RAM and good caching will perform every bit as quickly as one outfitted with SSD drives.
Does your experience agree/disagree with this?
