Great drive for a ZFS ZIL

 

Great drives to use in a mirror as a ZFS ZIL SLOG

High drive write endurance ~14 PB compared to the S3500's ~450TB drive life ; Fast ; Intel ; Works in almost any bit of hardware ; Capacitor backed to ensure writes do not get corrupted ; Not too expensive for an enterprise grade SSD

Reliability

 

I bought this for reliability! If it maintains its specs as new in 5 years, it will be worth the price.Intel Enterprise SSDs are the only major manufacturer who actually guarantee performance consistency.
