Flash SSD "random write IOPS" are now similar

why are they such a poor predictor of application performance?
why are users still buying
RAM SSDs which cost an
order of magnitude more than SLC? (let alone
MLC) - even
when the IOPS specs look similar.

why the specs got faster - but the applications didn't. And why competing SSDs

It will start to
replace the last remaining strongholds of
hard drives in the
datacenter due to its unique combination of characteristics, huge storage
density, low running costs and operational advantages.
storage SSDs will displace the last remaining hard drives in the enterprise
server market by 2020 - even if the price of a new hard disk drops to zero
and enterprise HDDs are given away free!

architectural models of the datacenter - how we get from here to there - and
