Should I go with a SSD drive for my small file server?

  1. I have a small file server that runs 24/7. I am concerned with the longevity of a standard HD that has spinning platters. Would a SSD drive be more reliable in the long run?

    I'm pretty certain they aren't long term tested (and lack proper long term reliability and feedback information) in the real world environment yet, so probably wouldn't be best for essentia and/or critical server deployments.

    However, wait for someone more knowledgeable than me to confirm this, because its entirely possible I'm incorrect.
