SSD or SATA on Retrospect server ?

Recommended Posts

I am upgrading drive of Retrospect Server 15.6 on a MacPro, and deciding between SSD or SATA drive. Only benefit of SSD is speed.

I am leaning towards a WD Black drive - sustained throughput, and reliability.

Any thoughts ?

SATA is a type of connection. It is used on both SSD as well as HDD.

I would use an SSD for the catalog file and HDDs as members of the Media Set.

Is this to be used as a 24/7 server? Then WD RED would probably be a better choice than WD Black.
