  • The ten best ways to use solid state disk
    less robust multilevel cell based SSD or you need to go with single level cell Unsworth said If you re doing a mix of both reads and writes then you re going to want to make sure that you re using the single level cell technology over the multilevel cell The more expensive SLC solid state drives are better suited to the enterprise because the wear life is longer for continuous writing than it is with MLC based drives NAND Flash SSDs can be especially helpful for a read intensive database table for example whereas DRAM SSDs whether in an appliance in cache or in DRAM combined with flash would be a better option for transaction logs or journal files where you re recording a copy of what s changing said Greg Schulz founder and analyst at StorageIO Group I tell folks if they re going to need to have super transaction rate capability because they re running some data mining application then one of the high performance boxes like Violin or Texas Memory Systems has could be a pretty economical way to go said Gene Ruth a senior storage analyst at Burton Group The alternative would be to build out a huge hard disk drive based system with all the power and space and maintenance and failure rates that go along with having lots of hard disks 6 Consider NAND flash solid state drives for caching purposes as a way to augment application performance Write caching is typically done at the storage device with DRAM cache that persists the writes to back end storage When that approach isn t fast enough DRAM solid state drives have been used to accelerate write intensive applications Now that lower cost flash is available SLC SSDs will increasingly become the preferred option for write caching especially when budgets are tight The effectiveness of any read caching layer depends on the size of the data set being accessed the frequency with which the data is read and the performance of the cache If the data set is small and being read on a frequent basis server RAM usually suffices But if the data set is large and the reads are random flash SSD can work well Although SLC and the less expensive MLC are both options the more durable SLC is generally favored 7 Consider solid state drive over short stroking Formatting a hard disk drive so that data is written only to the outer sector of the disk s platter can increase performance in high I O environments since it reduces the time the drive actuator needs to locate the data But that practice known as short stroking leaves a substantial percentage of the disk drive s capacity unused You re deliberately not using what you bought Because we re so used to it people think that s how it has to be said Mark Peters an analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group Even though SSD technology is nascent he said it already makes
