This review is from: Intel DC S3700 Series Taylorsville SSDSC2BA200G301 2.5" 200GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Purchased this drive for use as a SLOG on an HDD-only ZFS RAIDZ array. Unfortunately, it's one of the few SSDs that's really able to support the use case without the possibility of data loss, due to the employment of power loss protection capacitors. But what an SSD!
The individual drive specs are well-published elsewhere, so I won't repeat them here. But for use as a SLOG device, marvelous. After adding the SLOG, 4K random write over sync NFS, my throughput raised from around 2MB/s to around 30MB/s. Similar increases in throughput throughout the write range.
I'm using the array as a VMware datastore, via sync NFS share. Prior to adding the SLOG, write operations in a VM were unbearably slow. Access times varied wildly, and maxed out in the 1-2s range. Now seeing access times averaging around 1ms (over 1Gbps ethernet) and spiking (rarely) around 12ms. Needless to say, I am very happy with the results.
Cons: None found so far.
Other Thoughts: Overall a much better choice than iSCSI or async NFS. The price is a bit steep, but I am happy I paid it. VMs are now extremely responsive, and consistent. Would be nice to see some other SSD makers put their focus on consistent performance and (!!!) power loss protection.
