Partition Align for SSD

  • Users have growing requirement for computer operating efficiency, and no matter PC or server, the hardware configuration has been greatly improved. As the most classical hard drive for promoting computer hardware configuration, SSD has undoubtedly brought computer users with extraordinary experience of great data transmitting speed. But I believe most computer users have already realized the problem of SSD – partition align problem.
    Partition align is to match the minimum 4KB allocate unit of operating system with the 4KB size page in SSD. Thus, every time operating system writes a 4KB data in, it only needs to write in one page. If the partitions are not aligned, operating system will write in two pages every single time, so the data write-in rate is reduced. Hence, partition align is a significant operation to promote SSD performance.
