SSD Performance Tips: Avoid The Write Cliff
Solid state disk (SSD) has emerged as a popular storage medium, improving random read speed, power consumption, size, and shock resistance. Yet SSD has limitations in write performance and durability because of the physical properties of flash. These limitations can intensify when the SSD hits its “write cliff”, the point at which SSD write-performance slows down significantly.
This resource explores a simple, inexpensive, and non-disruptive solution that can greatly minimize the SSD write cliff effect while maximizing performance.
