Default Pillar Data Systems preparing SAN powered by Intel X25-E SSDs

SSDs, everyone's favorite inevitability, have been penetrating the market most notably at two points at opposite ends of the storage market: low-end netbooks and high-end SAN applications. The SAN end of the equation may soon be seeing some love later this year, courtesy of Intel's X25-E SLC SSD, which is to be deployed in Pillar's SAN-in-a-closet Axiom systems starting in June.

Axiom is an all-in-one SAN system with custom software and hardware, developed and sold by Pillar Data systems. Pillar was founded and backed by Oracle's Larry Ellison in 2002 to develop storage products optimized for Oracle, and this kind of small-reading, IOPS-focused database application is precisely the kind of market for which SSDs are best suited. Pillar isn't the first storage vendor to deploy SSDs in SAN, but says its Axiom system is better suited for SSD and can achieve greater success with them than prior efforts.
