RHEL 6 + software RAID из SSD дисков

Такая связка крайне не рекомендуется. Так как программный RAID в Linux не поддерживает команду TRIM. Если же RAID требуется, то, например, для замены RAID-1 (зеркало) можно использовать LVM mirror, так как он поддерживает команду TRIM.

In addition, keep in mind that MD (software raid) does not support discards. In contrast, the logical volume manager (LVM) and the device-mapper (DM) targets that LVM uses do support discards. The only DM targets that do not support discards are dm-snapshot, dm-crypt, and dm-raid45. Discard support for the dm-mirror was added in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.1.
Red Hat also warns that software RAID levels 1, 4, 5, and 6 are not recommended for use on SSDs. During the initialization stage of these RAID levels, some RAID management utilities (such as mdadm) write to all of the blocks on the storage device to ensure that checksums operate properly. This will cause the performance of the SSD to degrade quickly.
