The product, known as Skyhawk, will use consumer-grade multi-level cell (MLC) flash memory as the basis for a bulk storage solution at a price point of less than $3 per gigabyte.
Storage maker Texas Memory Systems has launched the RamSan-810, its first enterprise multi-level cell (eMLC) flash-based product, expanding the company’s market reach into the tier 1 storage arena. The move comes as more solid state disk (SSD) vendors are using the technology to challenge disk-based systems on performance-demanding applications.
Nimbus Data Systems has unveiled its new high-density enterprise flash memory system, delivering 10 terabytes of solid state capacity per 2U shelf. The S1000 can scale up to 250 TB per system and is being priced to challenge spinning disk appliances head on. For HPC and other enterprise users looking to turbo-charge performance of terascale-sized data sets, Nimbus offers a compelling case for making the switch to flash technology.
