|Editor:- February 25, 2015 - In 2014 - Avago Technologies -
which until then had not seemed much involved in enterprise storage -
suddenly got religion.
As a heavyweight interface chip and IP maker in other markets Avago
must have asked themselves - what are the key interfaces we need to be the #1
enterprise storage connect company? - especially
enterprise storage becomes solid state.
that's the way to interpret the acquisitions (last year) of

The novel and the short story both have their

experience which works best in different situations and why.
it comes to SSDs - Big versus Small SSD architecture - is something which was
in the designer's mind. Even if they didn't think about it that way at the time.
