PCIe SSD with Atomic Writes Located

     I found one of MariaDB’s recommended drive model on Amazon for a very reasonable price and ordered.  I don’t know if my motherboard will be able to boot from it because I don’t know if the BIOS knows about it, but it should be compatible from a hardware standpoint and Linux talks directly bypassing the BIOS once booted and all this drive is going to be used for is MariaDB storage so it should be fine.

     So thank you to all of you who sent me suggestions and web references.  I expect to have it in hand next Friday and baring no snow will install it that weekend, else will wait for a weekend without snow.
