SSD prices are coming down and adoption is going up. My clients have used them to solve all kinds of performance problems, and we've found some surprising results. In this session, I'll explain the internals of these fast drives and show the pros and cons of the various connection methods (SATA, PCI Express, SAN). Then we’ll switch over to the SQL Server world to see how to tell when and where you need SSDs. You'll even get real-world before-and-after metrics to help make the case to management.
