Intel 311 SLC SSD
 
There is no doubt that Solid State Drives (SSDs) are considerably faster than traditional hard drives, but most SSDs still have a limited number of write cycles and wear out, despite having no moving parts. This is because most SSDs use MLC NAND (Multi-Level Cell) rather than SLC NAND (Single-Level Cell). Unfortunately, an SSD using SLC NAND is considerably more expensive than one using MLC NAND of the same capacity, but what if you don't need that capacity? Wouldn't you be better off reducing the SSDs capacity and increasing its endurance? If so, the 20GB Intel 311 SLC SSD would likely be a good choice. Examples include...

1. As a Boot Drive for Windows or Linux.
2. In a Workstation, or PC Based Thin Client.
3. In a Media Client such as XBMC, or other PC Based Client Device.
4. In a PC Based Software Appliance, such as NexentaStor, or a 3CX Phone System.

While the drive is actually marketed as a cache drive, we prefer to take advantage of it's high endurance, by using it in one of the above scenarios to increase the reliability of our solutions.

2012-06-01 Update : The Intel 311 SLC SSD has now been superseded by the Intel 313.
