Fusion io - the power of 1000 hard drives in the palm of your hand
A new flash storage card from Fusion io could make huge storage area networks go the way of the dinosaur and DoDo bird. The company’s upcoming ‘ioDrive’ combines hundreds of gigabytes of flash storage onto a small computer card and company officials claim that the tiny card could replace banks of hard drives.
Flynn told us that the cards will start at 80 GB and will scale to 320 and 640 GB next year. By the end of 2008, Fusion io also hopes to roll out a 1.2 TB card. You can even put multiple cards into a computer for extra performance and fault tolerance.
So how fast is the ioDrive? Flynn said the card has 160 parallel pipelines that can read data at 800 megabytes per second and write at 600 MB/sec. He even proved it by running a Linux drive I/O benchmark.

I'd like one as an OS drive, although even 16GB would be enough.
They'll probably shoot themselves in the foot though by overcharging for it.
Cheap massive storage is far more worthy that average fast storage.
