SSD Benchmarking on brtfs

Brtfs, a new filesystem which has just entered the kernel mainline is a hot topic nowadays. SSD also becomes very popular recently. What if those two are combined on a single benchmark? Well, the answer lies on Phoronix recent benchmark on SSD mode in brtfs.

Brtfs has a mode that is optimized for solid-state drives, but does that mode is working as expected for SSD? Check your answers there big grin

It's quite interesting to see early benchmark from sites such as Phoronix as we as the end users will likely see how the new device or technology works with Linux.
