My Hard Drive Died #18 - SSD's, Servers and Toshiba Drives

I have a customer that uses a customized Red Hat server for inventory and point of sale operations. They recently hired me to review all of their hardware and software needs. I noticed that this Red Hat server is 8 years old (Pentium 4 with an 80 gb hard drive) and they have no back up. They contacted the vendor who quoted a Core i7 with an SSD hard drive.
Is an SSD hard drive suitable for a server? The vendor said it gives significant speed increases to the system, but a core i7 is overkill for this Red Hat server, in my opinion.
This is a cement / building materials business open 7 am - pm (no need for 24 hour access). I thought an SSD would not be as suitable as a regular SATA hard drive for a server?
Thanks in advance for your advice.
Wear leveling (also written wear levelling) is a technique for prolonging the service life of some kinds of erasable computer storage media, such as Flash memory used in solid-state drives (SSDs) and USB Flash drives. There are a few wear leveling mechanisms used in Flash memory systems, each with varying levels of longevity enhancement.
