Assuming the original poster means solid state disk with "SCSI flash
disk" - yes, these beasts are very expensive but sometimes have huge
advantages. I know a couple of cases where putting the filesystems
metadata on a solid state disk resulted in a gigantic performance boost
beyond everyones imagination (well, inode access was accerlated by
magnitues and this load was offloaded from the data disks...).
Alternative usage for this kind of disks are places where a normal disk
won't surive very long (for example: too hot (near an engine), too many
vibrations (near an engine or in a plane), strong magnetic fields
