Hi,

Has anyone done a performance comparison for an index on a Solid State Drive
(vs any other hard drive ... SATA/SCSI)?


Thanks, Rob.

    We did a fair amount of testing two years ago and put some graphs at http://wiki.statsbiblioteket.dk/summa/Hardware The short version is that they'll probably boost your raw search speed a lot. However, often all the web service wrapping and similar is the main performance bottleneck.

    Things has changes since then: CPU's, RAM and SSDs has gotten faster while hard disks has stayed the same, so the performance gap between SSDs and harddisks has widened.
