Broadbus develops fully scalable, next-generation video-on-demand server systems designed to solve streaming scale, space, power consumption and live ingest issues for communications service providers deploying advanced video services such as VOD, Subscription VOD, and ultimately, full-scale Television On-Demand (TOD). Broadbus offers a migration path to the emerging TOD environment, while fully exploiting existing upgraded broadband networks. The company's revolutionary server architecture, based on the intelligent configuration and management of massive amounts of random-access memory, enables service providers to offer their subscribers unparalleled convenience, choice, and control over their home entertainment. Broadbus was recently selected by Red Herring for inclusion into its annual list of Top 100 Private Companies, named for the second consecutive year to CED Magazine's Broadband 50, awarded Product of the Year by the Massachusetts Network Communication Council and listed as a finalist for Best Innovation in two categories for the first annual On-Demandies(TM) awards hosted by Digital Hollywood.

What's the risk with today's devices?

This article looks at the current generation of products and calculates how much (or how little) you should be worried.

RAM based SSDs have been used alongside RAID for years - but flash SSDs are physically smaller and have bigger capacity (160G in 2.5") and are lower cost than RAM-SSDs and could actually be configured in standard RAID boxes. F-SSDs aren't as fast as RAM based products but a single flash SSD can deliver 20,000 IOPs - which when scaled up in an array - starts to look interesting. ...read the article, storage reliability solid state disks
