Blog » 5 Utilize SSD for Oracle Database

Recently, read a article about utilizing SSD for Oracle Database.
The author is a Oracle ACE.

His best options are:

  • Place segments with high read but low write rates directly on SSD
  • Use the SSD with the 11GR2 database flash cache (if you are on OEL or Solaris)
  • If temporary segment IO is absolutely your bottleneck – but only then – consider placing the temporary tablespace on SSD.
  • He doesn’t think using SSD for redo logs is a good idea. The high rates of sustained sequential write IO is not the ideal type of IO for SSD.
