SSD MySQL Performance

The above graph and this MySQL performance blog story are from last year, but I believe are still relevant and instructive now. Sure, the FusionIO is faster, but how the hell can you beat a single SSD in terms of price/performance?

  • RAID 10: 4.8 transactions per minute per dollar
  • SSD: 27 transactions per minute per dollar
  • FusionIO: 3.6 transactions per minute per dollar
