Spot on. While overkill is fun to benchmark, it's important to build appropriate solutions.You don't need to forget that 0815 NAND with PLP might be enough for 99% of the home systems postet here.
We'd all love to be able to set up all-flash systems with NVDIMM SLOG devices and Optane special vdevs, connected via 40GbE and watch how fast they go - but many organizations and users don't need (or don't want to pay for) that kind of speed, and would be just as well served by a simpler and much less expensive setup.
Part of which is why I'm rather annoyed by the rumblings that Intel is discontinuing consumer-grade Optane devices, outside of the H20 hybrid/QLC model.
Those of you considering Optane 900p/905p devices for your special vdevs or SLOG devices, you might want to pick one up now before they're OOS, if this has any validity to it. Source from Tom's Hardware; I'm still searching for the official Intel discontinuation document. Edit: Thanks to...
The little M10 sticks and the 900p/905p were great for the home-lab and "prosumer" workspace.
