You can tell ESXi that a particular datastore is comprised of SSDs.

Here's how:
Enabling the SSD option on SSD based disks/LUNs that are not detected as SSD by default (2013188)

You end up having to set a datastore claim rule similar to:

esxcli storage nmp satp rule add --satp SATP_TYPE --device naa.ID --option "enable_ssd"

This is a supported and normal solution. I have to do it for SSD datastores sitting behind HP RAID controllers.

TRIM isn't an issue. If you're using a hardware controller, let things be.
