LinkedIn’s experience of upgrading their Project Voldemort clusters to using SSD:
At the beginning of this year, we migrated our Voldemort clusters to SSD (Solid State Drives) from SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) disks, to meet increasing demand for IOPS from data intensive applications.
This blog is called myNoSQL and it is written by me, Alex Popescu, a software architect with a passion for open source and communities.
It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and no other party necessarily agrees with them.
If you feel I'm biased, I probably am.
