Your Inputs Wanted! - for the Solid State Disk Market Research Survey

Editor:- September 28, 2004 - the Solid State Disk Buyer Market Survey is now open.

One of the most exciting parts of the computer market in recent years has been the Solid State Disk sector. Many of the world's fastest growing storage companies sell SSD products and SSDs have the potential to become a multi-billion dollar market. Yet despite the promise of Solid State Disks to become a disruptive new technology - which could change server architecture as much as symmetric multiprocessing did in the mid 1990s - there has never been an industry wide market survey to ask users and potential users about their needs for this technology to succeed in their real-life applications. Until now...

During the summer communicated with all major SSD vendors worldwide to help design and shape an independent market research survey which will help to learn more about users needs for SSD technology. Our survey, launched today is also being promoted and supported by many vendors in this industry. We will publish the results in a series of future articles on STORAGEsearch which will also help reveal:- what users want, what vendors should do better, and it will also influence the specifications of future SSD products and services.

We need your help! If you are already a user of SSDs - or have been thinking about using them - please spend a few minutes taking part in this survey. You will not be contacted by anyone as a result of taking part. Your voice will be heard, your vote counts, and you can help make sure that the next generation of Solid State Disks suit you and your organization's needs much better. to take part in the SSD survey, Solid state disks

Nibble:- Re: InfiniBand

InfiniBand is an interconnect or I/O architecture that connects servers with remote storage and networking devices, and other servers. It can also be used inside servers for inter-processor communication. InfiniBand is a channel-based, switched fabric, point-to-point interconnect, which provides scalability and performance for a wide range of platforms and price performance points.

InfiniBand provides a scalable performance range of 500 MB/s to 6 GB/s per link, meeting the needs from entry level to high-end enterprise systems.
