While operating systems and file systems are developing towards better usage of SSDs (solid state disks) it still helps to apply a few tunings to a Linux setup:

1. Append this to the kernel parameters:  elevator=noop
Dependend on your system possible files to do that are /etc/default/grub/etc/grub/grub.cfg/boot/grub/menu.lst.
Usually you need to call update-grub afterwards.

2. mount filesystems on SSDs with the parameters noatime,nodiratime.
/etc/fstab is the place to do that.
