OpenELEC NFS Booting How-To
#20
There's some performance boost, at least in comparison to using a class 4 SD card.

My initial reason for looking at it is that I'm somewhat scared about the life expectancy of an SD card: the first hit on Google suggests 100,000 write cycles (to each individual page of storage). Which is obviously fine for relatively static data with large files, but I'm more nervous when it comes to things like swap files and databases which could change thousands in the space of just a few minutes.

However, the reason I've done it is for file system stability: I've got my Pi powered from my television's USB port, so it powers up with the TV, and, more significantly, crashes instantly when I turn the TV off, potentially aborting in the middle of a write to the file system. Off loading that to a NAS drive removes the problem, as the file server stays up: it might still abort mid-way through writing a file, but at least the directories are properly maintained.
