Solid state data storage is gaining significant acceptance today. Storage based on Ram Access Memory (RAM) and Flash chips instead of mechanical hard disk drives is earning much greater attention by meeting the market requirements for reliability, performance, and cost more effectively than ever before.
The solid-state drives help Instagram deliver on its customers' demands for speed, a co-founder said.
Have solid state drives finally caught up to hard disk drives in terms of cost to capacity ratio? A lot has changed in three years. SSDs today are far more reliable, have greater endurance and perform better (in some cases, two to three times better) than in 2009.
Want the speed of a solid-state drive without the cost? You might be able to set up a virtual hard drive in your PC by creating a RAM disk.
The PCIe SSD adapter cards offer data replication between servers for resiliency.
While SSD drives are less susceptible to fail from being dropped, data loss can still occur due to a variety of circumstances they have their own unique characteristics that make recovery inherently complex.
A new version of the 3PAR P10000 platform can be configured entirely with SSDs or with some spinning disks.
Pricing for SSD-equipped notebooks must below $700 to be competitive with devices that use hard drives, researcher says.
Reduced suggested retailer pricing for Intel's SSD 320, SSD 330, and SSD 520 serieshas taken effect, says an Intel press-release.
Amazon Web Services Thursday released a solid state drive-backed cloud compute offering that one industry watcher says is among the highest capacity ones on the market.
