Intel Solid-State Drives and data recovery

Intel Channel Conference: From the horse's mouth: Backup, backup, backup!

One thing to keep in mind as SSDs become more ubiquitous: The need to have backups is mandatory since data recovery from a failed SSD is an unknown or possibly impossible.

No more freezer method folks!

Note that we will be seeing more SSDs in laptops and workstations as we go along.

So, a backup strategy for those clients that begin using them should be in mind when quoting an SSD based system. Backups should be the first thing that comes to mind if a client contacts us after purchasing an SSD based system too.
