    Question SSD's & Linux

    I was wondering since SSD's are starting to become more affordable to common folk like I, how does Linux handle SSD's on a modern Linux distribution with a 3.4+ kernel? Are there things I should know about performance or getting the most out of my SSD using on Linux? I was told I need to make sure that Linux can support TRIM ...

    Anyone have any advice for a Linux power user that is looking to build a new system on SSD's & things to note or beware of? Any post install configuration required for my SSD's to run optimal?

    Thanks for any info!

    No difference between an SSD and a SATA disk.
    If you mean a MSATA card then it may depend upon the motherboard, and how the cmos sees the card.
    I have an installation that uses 4 256gb SSD in RAID1, and there does not seem to be any performance degradation in over two years of operation.

    Did you add any parameters for 'trim' or 'relatime' in /etc/fstab?

    No. It is actually SCO 6.0.0 not Linux. The file systems are vxfs. The client has 40 to 80 active users running a call center (collection agency.)
