Personally, I'm averse to using SSD with any important long term data
is the nightmare that I could one day wake up to find everything gone
without any means of recovery. Compared that to a hard disk, which
barring catastrophic physical damage, I could pay somebody to just
read the data off the platter.

As a performance boosting intermediary storage, yes, long term...
maybe not quite yet.
