SSD Disks and SharePoint 2010

February 8, 2011

I have recently set up a new virtualized SharePoint development machine with a SSD Disk (Model Kingston 128GB SSDNow V-Series V+ SATA2 2.5).  I measured the time it takes to load a start page of a site collection after iisreset. The virtualization software was virtual box. The tested site collection was Enterprise Wiki. Here is the configuration of the systems:
Host system

  • Windows 7 64bit
  • 8GB RAM

Virtualized Server

  • Windows 2008 Server 64bit R2
  • SharePoint 2010
  • 4GB RAM

Here are the results

System Time (seconds) 
with SSD disk 8
with standard disk 32 

Pretty impressive
