I installed ubuntu 14.04 on my laptops SSD with full encryption enabled on installation and I just realized, that the installer created a swap partition. swapon shows me

Filename                 Type       Size    Used    Priority
/dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-swap_1  partition    8065020 208 -1

As far as I know, for suspend-to-disk these 8GB are needed since I have 8GB RAM. However, I've often read, that swap partitions should be used with caution when placed on an SSD. So do I have to mind this at all (and maybe delete the partition or change some settings) or is this just "okay"?
