|SSDs have been used in RAID
configurations since the 1990s. But there are problems with this approach when
using conventional RAID controllers and 2.5" SSDs.
Although SSD IOPS (and throughput) does scale in arrays - latency is
slugged by slow controllers which were originally designed for HDDs. That has
inspired the development o alternative data striping methods which are more
suited to big arrays of flash - and some of those techniques have also been used
in cloud-like HDD arrays too.
