As far as performance goes, SSD>SAS since they have flash based memory, but they have less capacity per drive and cost more. Choosing drives based on price, capacity and performance for certain situation would be good and cost-efficient, but it takes huge effort and that’s why most just pick one over the other.

SSD without question, like people have already said. SAS is good for backups and storage as its much cheaper

Cost, capacity and reliability are factors for why SSD adoption hasn't occurred at all levels. SSDs cost more than SAS disks for a given capacity.

But in general, servers don't actually come with a particular type of disk. Storage is something that is configured afterwards.
