- editor's comments:- in May 2010 -
the SSD market by announcing a
agreement to acquire Adaptec's channel
storage business for approximately $34 million in cash. This deal includes
Adaptec's RAID storage product line, its global VAR customer base, board
logistics capabilities, and (most significantly)
SSD cache performance
storage market outlook
2010 to 2015 article - published last year - I explained why I thought that
the enterprise RAID
controller market couldn't stay as it was.
These companies have
to get into offering complete SSD
solutions in the long term. In the short term PMC-Sierra may be able to do a
better job aggregating a bigger percentage of whatever remains of the untied
RAID controller business.
I expect the RAID business (for
hard disks) will
eventually become a consumer / SMB market - while the enterprise storage array
part of this market will morph through an
SSD ASAP phase -
while users struggle to redefine
architectures for the datacenter.
|how fast can your
SSD run backwards?|
|SSDs are complex devices and there's a
lot of mysterious behavior which isn't fully revealed by
vendor's product datasheets and whitepapers. Underlying all the important
aspects of SSD behavior are
which arise from the intrinsic technologies and architecture inside the SSD.
Which symmetries are most important in an SSD?
depends on your application. But knowing that these symmetries exist, what they
are, and judging how your selected SSD compares will give you new insights
no such thing as - the perfect SSD - existing in the market today - but
the SSD symmetry list helps you to understand where any SSD in any memory
technology stands relative to the ideal.
