Desktop workstation considerations regarding Teamwork local data - second drive: HD or SSD?

Johan Stinckens

We are replacing one of the workstations in our firm and I have been quoted for two similar machines.
The one difference between them: the second 1TB drive is either a HD or an SSD.

Any ideas on this considering that we have recently moved more of our projects to BIMcloud.
The local copies of the Teamwork projects would either reside on a SSD or on a 7200rpm HD.

What performance improvements might we expect? Are these significant or not?!

I only use SSDs, whether internal or external type. Because they are solid state technology, they have fast read/write and no mechanical failure. If you utilize external type (for off-line back-up or mobility), you may want to consider independently encrypted models.

Will you be working off that drive? If so, the SSD will be a significant improvement.
