ACARD mentions in SSD market history

In July 2008 - ACARD unveiled the 9010 RAM Disk - a 5.25" form factor, 64GB SATA compatible RAM SSD.

In a test report sequential write performance on a single SATA port is quoted as follows, 29MB/s (512B), 100MB/s (4kB), and 151MB/s (64kB).

Throughput for 2 ports was approximately 2x a single port. Unlike a flash SSD - the random write performance was similar to the sequential (in some cases better.)

Surviving SSD sudden power loss
Why should you care what happens in an SSD when the power goes down?

This important design feature - which barely rates a mention in most SSD datasheets and press releases - has a strong impact on SSD data integrity and operational reliability.

This article will help you understand why some SSDs which (work perfectly well in one type of application) might fail in others... even when the changes in the operational environment appear to be negligible.
