Linux Solid-State Drive Benchmarks
Phoronix: Linux Solid-State Drive Benchmarks
With the number of netbooks on the market continuing to increase each month and more of these mobile devices switching to solid-state drives for their reliability, extended battery life, and faster performance, SSDs are becoming quite common and finding themselves meeting many Linux hosts. How though does the real-world performance differ between hard disk drives and solid-state drives on Linux? We have run several tests atop Ubuntu on a Samsung netbook with a HDD and SSD. In addition, we have also looked at the encryption performance using both types of drives.
Your tests don't whos off SDD'd force
I'm sorry but all your tests target transfer rates, as opposed to seek time. EVen the Sqlite insert benchmark; you should have at least benchmarked multi-table swipe selects, with a DB size > RAM.
Hard Disk Drives have excellent transfer rates, and it's almost never been a problem in itself; seek times is what you spend the most time waiting for.
