editor's comments: June 2012 - Nutanix is in the SSD ASAP market - with CPU-SSD equivalency integrated in the OS.

The company says their architecture "collapses compute and storage into a single tier." Each box - which contains some CPU, SSD (Fusion-io) and some HDD. Their Google-like democratic architecture connects via an NFS type of connection which is optimized for SSD. The company calls this NDFS - Nutanix Distributed File System.
Nutanix - selected mentions in SSD market history

In April 2011 - Nutanix announced that it has received $13.2 million in Series A funding in a significantly oversubscribed round. Investors include Lightspeed Venture Partners, which has made successful investments in companies such as Brocade, Riverbed, and Fusion-io, and Blumberg Capital, an early-stage venture firm.

In June 2012 - 2012 - Nutanix announced the general availability of NDFS (Nutanix Distributed File System), a bold new distributed filesystem that has been optimized to leverage localized low latency PCIe SSDs such as those from Fusion-io.

The enterprise SSD story...

why's the plot so complicated?

and was there ever a missed opportunity in the past to simplify it?
the elusive golden age of enterprise SSDs
don't all PCIe SSDs look pretty much the same?
When you look at the photos and headline specs for high speed PCIe SSDs - it's easy to come away with the impression that they all look the same and have about the same performance.

After all - how different can they be?

But don't let the experience of the 2.5" SSD market - in which clusters of consumer SSD vendors use the same or similar controllers and hover close together inpopular (consumer) performance rankings - give you the wrong idea about PCIe SSDs.

In this market the performance limits and capabilities of the SSD aren't set by an old hard disk interface and package limitations.

In the PCIe market the products you get are limited only by the imagination of the designers - tempered by the guesses of marketers who are trying to predict the optimum (most salable) features for an ideal SSD.
