In episode 22 about storage enclosures recognition on Server 2012 R2, the example that was made was using tiers for SSD and SATA. I am wondering if in a production environment, SSD would not be a good choice since that tier will be heavy with write requests which might burn out the SSD quickly. From my understanding, SSD drives are better for more read intensive work such as a master OS image rather than high frequency transactions. Please advise of your experience with this.
Also now that Windows is monitoring the data and assessing what is more highly used and what is not, how much overhead does that add to the system for the OS to be doing this analysis versus the storage enclosure itself.
