Sun adds SSDs to their Blade Servers
Sun has announced that it is now adding SSDs to its line of x64 blade servers. Sun uses an approach to integrating SSDs that it claims will provide up to 70% faster response time and up to 98% less power consumption that traditional hard drives. Reduced power consumption in enterprise data centers can save huge sums of money for the enterprise market.
Sun reports that it has qualified its Solaris ZFS software with the SSDs to allow virtual pooling of drives behind the file system. The SSDs that Sun will be using in its server systems are the 32GB Intel X-25E SSDs priced at $1,199 per SSD. The Sun Fire X6250 blade system starts at $3,240.
