I'd reduce the drives (as SSDs have virtually no latency)
In reply to WatsonPhoto, Jun 13, 2013

Go with a single larger SSD and be done with it.

Unlike systems with physical hard drives, you don't have the latency problems (heads needing to move to different locations and wait for the platters to spin to the desired locations to find the data needed) with an SSD.

So, I think you'd see a negligible benefit by installing multiple SSDs and trying to split i/o between them. With physical hard drives, that was a great strategy. With SSDs with virtually no latency, I think you're "barking up the wrong tree".

IOW, I think the benefit of multiple SSDs is likely to be *very, very* small.  I'd personally go with a single, larger SSD instead in that type of setup.
