The Virtual Datacenter; 500 VMs in 10U?

Now why can't someone build a 6-Tbyte and 2-Gbyte/sec SSD array as a blade addon?

A 14 blade nahalem CPU system and (2) 6TB storage blades would make an awesome all in one Vmware in a 10U box system!

No Nework, No SAN, and high IO!

I'de buy 5 of these tomorrow!

Didn't GATES and DELL get their start by providing a simple solution in their garage?

Sandisk M2 2TB Memory Stick @60MB/s

8/3/2009 UPDATED SPECS: Memory Stick XC

It's been awhile since my last posting here mainly due to lack of any interesting storage news. Well this came across my RSS this morning.

Starting in 2009, Sony and Sandisk will make a giant leap in storage capacity for the Memory Stick memory card.

"Memory Stick format for Extended High Capacity (Tentative name)" expands the "Memory Stick PRO" format series to achieve a maximum storage capacity of 2-terabytes (TB), with a maximum data-transfer speed of 60 megabytes per second (MB/s)

The SSD ERA lasted.... about 12 months!

Game Changer!
