830 or SandForce for VM storage? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
It is so funny how write amplification is blown out of proportion...normal users dont even. Need to worry about it. Only in high demand servers or where tons of ssmall data is beiing written is when it matters. Vms are mostly reads just as the OS.

I'm curious to understand your reasoning behind recommending the 830 and not the m4.

The m4's 4k writes are superior to the 830 according to as-ssd in both the 4k and 4k-64thrd areas.

im at school so here is the short reason of why i think. Basically the write speeds decline lower than sand force drives after and during continual writing. The 830 handles constant writing better than the M4. But that still does not happen on user level for the most part. Even with a few VMs constantly running you will not get an issue with either. Personally I haven't had any with my m4 over moths of heavy vm and media editing usage.

Lol I know right?

Hopefully LSI fixes all the issues they have, then they can be something good.

Thanks to everyone that has helped me in picking up an SSD for this purpose. I've decided to go with a bigger SSD and went with the Samsung 830 128GB drive, less then $200 so I'm pretty happy - should be here in just a few days. biggrin.gif
