  • editor's comments:- August 2012 - Like most other software companies Symantec was late entering the SSD market. And it's not really an SSD software company - but rather, instead, a storage software company which can do a few limited things with legacy architecture SSDs.

    The 1st time I noticed their SSD related activities was in December 2009 - when Symantec announced an upgrade to its Storage Foundation management software which enables it to automatically discover SSDs from leading vendors and optimize data placement on SSD devices transparently.

    I said at the time - "This is best viewed as a tool within the context of a complex and expensive data migration service - rather than an auto-tuning SSD acceleration tool. You'll still need the SSD Hot Spot Engineer to tell you where to migrate those files to."

    In 2011 - Symantec was part of a joint venture with Huawei called Huawei Symantec - which provided systems in the high availability SSD market.

    Then, more recently - in August 2012 - Symantec was said to be supplying Violin Memory with replication and related modules for use with Violin's SSD racks.
