    So you wouldn't recommend it to run database(s) on?

    SSD wear is on write. It's a bit of a double edged sword as you mentioned. Effectively you want the stuff you want to LOAD quickly on the SSD and you want to minimize unnecessary writes to the SSD.

    NEVER EVER put your swap file on your SSD. Yes it's fast, but it will severely shorten the life of your SSD with useless writes.

    if you use Enterprise grade MLC and TLC drives then a DB is perfectly fine...

    but then again you're forking out R45k per 3.75 TB drive

    But even consumer grade SSD's, running a database(s) on this drive will surely improve its overall performance in reading and writing to the DB but this will result in much shorter lifespans of the drive, isn't?

    100% correct...just don't expect the drive to last very long. After ~100TB worth of writes most consumer grade SSDs will start reallocating, and once that start happening it's on its way out.
