Yes, but only to a point.

The UK Web Archive has done some tests on optimizing indexes on both
spinning drives and SSDs:

With spinning drives, their machines maxed out on IOWait. With SSD, the
machine maxed out on CPU. That might sound great, but the problem is
that optimizing on a single shard is single threaded (at least for Solr
4.10.x), so if there is only a single shard on the machine, only 1 CPU
is running at full tilt. There is always a bottleneck.

What might help is that the SSD (probably) does not get bogged down by
the process, so it should be much better at handling other requests
while the optimization is running.
