Iin March 2010 - hyperI/O announced that its hIOmon software supports the collection of Microsoft "TRIM" related SSD metrics - which can be captured during normal, everyday application use and without any OS, file system, file, or application changes required.

re - Your article on "Where are we now with SSD software?"
Hello Zsolt,

I just read your article today (May 29, 2011) on "Where are we now with SSD software?". I found it to be a very interesting read.

In particular, you have touched upon several important items, such as reasons why the software industry has taken so long to wake up to the idea of SSDs - and moreover, the "many questions still remaining to be answered" that you listed at the end of your article.

Indeed, it does appear that we are entering into an exciting time for SSD software. Thanks again for being at the forefront on this important topic.

Best, Tom West, President hyperI/O
