Solid state storage vendors are making a frontal assault on the hard disk establishment in the datacenter.
The assault on hard disk storage seems to be building with each new flash memory offering. This week, Violin Memory launched a new solid state memory line aimed to replace primary storage in the datacenter. The Violin 6000 Series flash Memory Arrays is designed as an all-silicon storage solution for data-intensive enterprise applications, and is intended to compete against disk-based solutions in cost, both upfront and operationally.
GPFS gobbles 10 billion files in less than an hour using Violin Memory’s solid-state storage.
Company claims speed and cost advantages over rivals’ flash arrays.
