Samsung M.2 NVMe drives.

[ Edited ]

Any tech people out there think this is a bad idea?

 

I am thinking of buying a Supermicro BB server and adding a couple of Samsung 256gb M.2 in raid 0 and another couple of cheap SAS drives for backup.

 

In terms of processor for SQL express I am thinking fastest clock speed and cores make no difference? so a  E5-2637 v3. 

 

I installed one of these drives on my home PC and everything happens much quicker and its not just the normal  "is it quicker?" " not sure?" its mind blowingly fast!!!!. I unzipped a 1gb file and it took about 5 seconds.!!!! It took 15 minutes to clone my SSD and transfer the OS to the new drive.

 

Your thoughts would be much appreciated.....
