Thanks to Rob (Twitter: @robupham) for pointing this video out to me. With Solid State Drives (SSD) increasing in popularity at both a home PC and Enterprise level (server and SAN) have you ever wondered what sort of data through-put you could achieve via a bunch of SSDs (24 drives, 6TB) connected to a high specification dual socket quad core PC?
Of course you have…. 🙂
I think you’ll agree that the performance of over 2000 MB/s on both sequential reads and writes achieved are quite impressive and shows the performance potential that SSD’s bring.
At an Enterprise level the majority of main server and storage manufacturers (EMC, HP, NetApp) are already offering SSD as an option but for many businesses the current high cost is prohibitive to adoption though it is a matter of time before SSD prices drop and their capacities increase.
These are exciting times we live in…
