If you run it on the "real" kind of solid state drives, you can just do
it with no concerns.  I've been recommended "MTRON" as a really good
and some of the fastest drives for this kind of purpose.

If you run it on "lets stick a SATA converter in front of a camera-flash"
drives, you'll suffer terrible write service time (0.1+ second) and wear
them out in no time.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
