Default *BSD support for solid state disks?

Hello,

O.K., so they're very expensive right now, but I have a hunch that in the next 2-3 years they will start to become competitive with traditional hard drives. And in the next 5-10 they may displace traditional hard drives as the standard disk storage on a workstation.

With that in mind, how well does *BSD support solid state disks?

Well, how well does BSD support flash devices? it varies.. most SSD devices are ATA/SATA compliant.. so assuming they're well designed, they should be supported today.

Some advice: "Try it out", it's almost impossible to know how somethings going to perform without actually testing it.

You can check miscATopenbsd for some recent discussions and testings on solid state HDD. Marko P. is developer in charge of solid disks for OpenBSD project.
