High-Performance IO or "How to write a SSD to death"

20 minutes



We all have them in our laptops and are happy about short boot time – but SSDs have also their right to exist in servers.
As in my last project we have been using SSDs for our db server for several years, I want to share some of our experiences, covering the following topics:

* What is a SSD and how does it work?
* Why do you want to use SSDs?
* What is the current state of the art?
* NVMFS (proprietary file system for SSDs)
