Geek Sheet: A Tweaker’s Guide to Solid State Drives (SSDs) and Linux

| Tweak #4: Ditch the journal and RAID your SSDs. *File system journaling is
| done primarily for increased reliability, but it’s a drag on performance.
| Given that SSDs by their nature are going to be less prone to reliability
| quirks than a conventional drive, Mandrake suggests creating a RAID1 of two
| SSD units and formatting the file system to ext2, or formatting them to ext3
| and mounting them as ext2 in the /etc/fstab. Dump your MySQL database on a
| RAID of ext2 SSDs, and you’ll be in performance hog heaven.

If your SSD sucks, blame Vista, says SSD vendor

,----[ Quote ]
| It's Windows Vista's fault that solid-state storage isn't performing as well
| as its proponents predicted. So said SanDisk CEO Eli Harari, but at least he
| didn't go as far as saying it's Microsoft's problem to fix.
