With the release of Ubuntu 10.10 I was considering an upgrade to one of those flashly and fast solid state hard drives.
I've done some reading and it seems there are a myriad of different things to do to get them to perform at their optimum. There is this TRIM thing (something to increase the life of the drive I believe) and does Ubuntu/Fedora etc include TRIM support with the latest kernal? What about caches? I've read that I should move cache to other drives or be held in memory. I've already got a 1Tb drive for my data. What about this 'alignment' thing. There is a lot of information and not much of: do A, followed by B, then C. I'm finding it quite confusing at the moment.
Whose tech is best for Linux? Someone advice would be greatly received and some instructions on how to set up one of these drives successfully.
I'm considering something like this: Option1
, or Option 3
(NB: No advertising that site, just happened to be where I was browsing before posting!)
Thanks in advance.
