Due to space limitations within the 5015A-PHF rackmounts and my
budget limitations I'm thinking about using an 80 GByte Intel
SSD along with a conventional 1-2 TByte SATA drive in a sensible
way for vserver production systems.
Linux doesn't have any native/production filesystems like zfs yet.
Presumably btrfs will be up to snuff sometime, but it is probably
years away from production still.
Presumably one could mount such a hybrid zfs an iSCSI device, but
that would waste the iSCSI host. Also, the GBit Ethernet would
be a bottleneck (at max 115 MByte/s throughput), so one would
have to use channel bonding and an additional network card.
So I'm thinking about how to use such a hybrid SSD/HD setup manually.
The obvious solutions would be to use the SSD for swap and for /tmp,
and HD for everything else.
Another idea is to get the whole (vhashified) servers to live
there, and mount /home from the conventional hard disk.
Any additional ideas?
