in the next days I want to install a Linux server.
This server should run 24/7. One question about
Somebody told me that S-ATA HD are not suitable
for a server because they are not supposed to
be run 24h every day. Instead this person
recommended me to use SCSI HDs which are more
reliable in this case. Is this true?
Or shouldn't I worry about using S-ATA harddisks
for my server?

Thank you for your answer.
