  • editor's comments:- March 2010 - in the middle ages of storage history - before SSDs took up all my time - I used to spend a lot more time writing about other subjects in the storage market - including backup software.

    And we had a lot of readers interested in this subject. So much so that many leading backup companies in the market found it worthwhile advertising here on StorageSearch.com. They might do that again - in the distant future - when the SSD backup market grows out of its diapers.

    There's no mention of the word "SSD" yet on Arkeia's website. No doubt that will change when the next wave of the SSD market bubble hits the software market.

    Going back to storage history you can see, below, 2 examples from of a series of banner ads which Arkeia ran here during 2004 and 2005. If you click on them you will go back in time. But please be patient. (It sometimes takes 60 seconds for the tape library to find the cartridge.)

the Problem with Write IOPS - in flash SSDs
Repeating write operations in some apps

magnitude longer than predicted by IOPS
benchmarks and latency specs.

Time goes by - in the "play it again Sam"
scene intrinsic to databases - discrediting
long established performance modeling metrics.

suggestions by - Robb Moore, CEO, ioSafe....................
Here's an article written about a topic central to ioSafe's thinking.

Integrating SSD and Maintaining Disaster Recovery - by George Crump founder of Storage Switzerland

Robb Moore recommends this article because it provides an informative overview of the key points that organizations need to consider when integrating SSDs into their data centers.

Robb also recommends:...

SSD Poised to Move into the Data Center - published on NetworkComputing.com

which he says - provides an overview of the drivers for SSDs becoming mainstream in data centers.

Editor:- thanks Robb for sharing your SSD links.
