Linux and SSD @ 5k Random 4k Writes

Apparently, Linus has a new Intel drive he’s happy with:

In contrast, the Intel SSD does about 8,500 4kB random writes per second. Yeah, that’s over eight thousand IOps on random write accesses with a relevant block size, rather than some silly and unrealistic contiguous write test. That’s what I call solid-state media.

They are almost certainly using an internal log structured filesystem to see this type of performance.

Nice that we’re seeing actual number on this drive now.
