SSD on HyperV VMs ?
Posted on 2012-09-06
Knowing that SSD has write wear limit, but needing the speed, I am thinking of having my 4VMs running under SSD.
I would have a big SSD (around 512GB) and will install all VMs on it.
Does it make sense to put the Windows Pagefile on another Disk (SATA) as to prevent wear-off of the SSD ?
The VMs will mainly hold DC, SQL 2008 R2 DB (80GB) ,and file server...
What configuration could I use to benefit the max to my SSD ?
I could even have 4 SSD, 1 for each VM...
is there any whitepaper, any explanation as to how Windows (2008R2) behaves in terms of write/read on the HDD/SSD so that we can better determine where to put what ?
What about SQL ? any hint ? any recommendation ?
