I assume you're talking about solid state drives? They have their
uses, but for most use cases, having plenty of RAM in your server will
be a better way to spend your money. For certain high throughput,
relatively small databases (i.e. transactional work) the SSD can be
quite useful. For large reporting databases running into the terabyte
range they're prohibitively expensive.
