With the opensuse build service [obs] getting more usage every day
I wonder if this would make a diffence :-

1. Use  solid state disks [ssd] to  improve build times of package rpms
on, perhaps point the BuildRoot or _tmppath to the ssd's

Reason for asking.
Improve the packaging times during busy times on obs.

Cheers Glenn.

Unfortunately there is a cost associated, but it would be cool to get
a bunch of fusion IO cards and see how they perform.

But those are really expensive... 160GB storage  for a few _thousands_
of dollars.. :)

Its more effective to place workers in tmpfs . Enough RAM needed ;) .


It would be cool if Intel donated a bunch of SSDs so that they could
get their logo up on the OBS site.
