How do those things work? Are they using the same connectors as regular IDE or SATA drives? How much do those run for?
I think most of them run natively off SATA. Only truly useful if you need:
- Fast bootup
- Disk access speed
The only potential benefits for LiveATC nodes are:
- fast bootup (debatable whether this is an advantage if the node is up most of the time anyway)
- quiet (this can be a real benefit for nodes inside homes, as Lezam well knows)
