I'm interested in upgrading my old MacBook to using an SSD and moving the data drive to where the DVD drive is using an optibay.

Often SSDs come with a licence for NVELO Dataplex software (which is windows only). This software is basically a windows driver that keeps track of commonly used files and moves then to the SSD, thereby giving you a hybrid SSD.

Is there anything like NVELO Dataplex for OS X or should I just put OS X and applications on the SSD, and put home folders on the HDD using symbolic links?

I have been thinking the same since I learned about Nvelo Dataplex and recently I stumbled upon ssdcache

It looks like they are working on versions for Mac, Linux and Windows.
