Can SSDs Be Partitioned?

Recently our web host announced that they're launching the SSD based servers that promises greater speeds. I have never used any SSD based device, so just wondering whether SSDs can be partitioned just they way we partition our regular hard drives?

yes, you can do it as the way you partition your regular hard drive, no difference 😉

Tulay Thanks! Just wondering whether it'd really be useful to partition it. Also, what type of filesystems do SSDs support?

it supports NTFS, but I think it supports FAT32 too..

would it be useful to partition it? partition doesnt change the performance, but they have already small memories, so normal users dont need to partition it. but the most important thing is their speed. I use vertex 2 ocz, about speed, on the catalog it writes;
read: 280 MB/s,
write: 270 MB/s,
but I couldnt pass 170 MB/s on read speed and 70 MB/s on write speed..
We bought WD-Caviar and it rocks... We could make a live recording in HD!!! 😛
