Intel X25-E Extreme SSD Benchmarks On Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| In early January we had delivered Linux Solid-State Drive Benchmarks of an 
| OCZ Core Series V2 SSD, which was a low-cost low-capacity single-cell drive. 
| The increased performance and decreased power consumption compared to a 
| 5400RPM Serial ATA 2.0 hard drive was nice for a netbook, but how are the 
| higher-end solid-state drives performing? In this article, we have a 
| high-performance Intel X25-E Extreme SSD on a System76 notebook running 
| Ubuntu Linux.      


Linux kicks arse on SSD (links/evidence below)


Which operating system is best for solid-state drives?

,----[ Quote ]
| According to Far, Mac OS X runs "a little faster than Vista" with an SSD
| drive, but Linux is "always faster" than Vista or Mac OS X -- to the tune of
| 1% to 2% -- because like Windows 2000, "it never runs anything in the
| background."


Linux Solid-State Drive Benchmarks

,----[ Quote ]
| With the number of netbooks on the market continuing to
| increase each month and more of these mobile devices
| switching to solid-state drives for their reliability,
| extended battery life, and faster performance, SSDs are
| becoming quite common and finding themselves meeting many
| Linux hosts. How though does the real-world performance
| differ between hard disk drives and solid-state drives on
| Linux? We have run several tests atop Ubuntu on a Samsung
| netbook with a HDD and SSD. In addition, we have also
| looked at the encryption performance using both types of
| drives.


Should Filesystems Be Optimized for SSD’s?

,----[ Quote ]
| As long as SSD manufacturers force us treat these devices as black boxes,
| there may be a certain amount of cargo cult science which may be forced upon
| us file system designers — or I guess I should say, in order to be more
| academically respectable, “we will be forced to rely more on empirical
| measurements leading to educated engineering estimations about what the SSD
| is doing inside the black box”. Heh.
