Testing Intel, Samsung & SanDisk SATA SSD

While working on the service architecture for one of our projects, I considered several SATA SSD options as the possible main storage for the data. The system will be quite write intensive, so the main interest is the write performance on capacities close to full-size storage. After some research I picked several candidates (I show […]

On SSDs – Lifespans, Health Measurement and RAID

Solid State Drive (SSD) have made it big and have made their way not only in desktop computing but also in mission-critical servers. SSDs have proved to be a break-through in IO performance and leave HDD far far behind in terms of Random IO performance. Random IO is what most of the database administrators would […]

HandlerSocket on SSD

We all enjoyed Yoshinori announcement of HandlerSocket, the plugin to MySQL which open NOSQL way to access data stored in InnoDB. The published results are impressive, but I want to understand some, that’s why I run couple more experiments. In blog post Yoshinori used the case when all data fits into memory, and one of […]

On Benchmarks on SSD

(cross post from SSD Performance Blog ) To get meaningful performance results on SSD storage is not easy task, let’s see why. There is graph from sysbench fileio random write benchmark with 4 threads. The results were taken on PCI-E SSD card ( I do not want to name vendor here, as the problem is […]
