Solid State Storage in a PCI Express Clustering Interconnect (pdf)
Miller says he chose this article because "Using PCIe SSDs as Direct
Attached Storage (DAS) is a hot topic these days. This paper describes

This includes simple DAS, with virtualization and HA support for up to 2TB for
slot limited rack or blade servers to the ability for integration in PCIe
cluster environments for multi-server connectivity and eventually shared storage
creating 'networked' DAS - the flexibility of SAN, simplicity of DAS and the
performance of SSD."
