I want to setup a small ESXi server, which has to be silent, therefore I will use a SSD drive, however I am not sure which one I shall use and which parameters of a SSD are important for usage with ESXi?
I am thinking on one of these (price rougly the same, capacity enough for me)
- OCZ Onyx 32GB
- Intel SSD 320 Series 40GB
- OCZ Vertex 30GB
- Kingston SSDNow V-Series 30GB
For example the Onyx is faster in writing than the Tntel SSD, but the Intel SSD performs better on 4K, but I have to admit I have no clue whether 4K is important for ESXi! The Kignston seems to have an agressive cleanup / trim like behaviour built-in maybe that's useful because ESXi supports no trim?
