SSDs are very resilient and provide faster access to data.

SSD enablement results in several benefits:

It enables usage of SSD as swap space for improved system performance. For information about using SSD datastores to allocate space for host cache, see the vSphere Resource Management documentation.

It increases virtual machine consolidation ratio as SSDs can provide very high I/O throughput.

It supports identification of virtual SSD device by the guest operating system.
