Upgrade results, bonus for dragonflybsd.org

Remember the upgrade for dragonflybsd.org machines?  It completed, and it’s interesting to see that SSDs have become so easily available that “spinning rust” hard disk drives are only still useful for bulk storage, and even then probably not for much longer.

Another neat side effect: disk usage on developer system leaf.dragonflybsd.org  was cut in half, thanks to HAMMER2 dedup/compression.  It’s a ‘free’ half-terabyte.

    Big SSDs are still 8 times as expensive as hard drives, at least in Norway. I can’t afford to install SSDs in all my computers.
