I used to work with these for a while. At the time they were called DOM 
(DiskOnModule) and then the SSD came out ans the term changed.

They last about 2 years and then you will start losing bits here tand there. 
The read/write cycles may reach the limit pretty quickly if you have intense 
operations like swap or frequent read/write on certain files.

I would use it just as a boot partition with all tools and utilities on it. 
This way it may last longer.
