That’s right folks, everything is bigger in Texas (oh yeah, I went there). Texas Memory Systems recently
a monster of a 2U shelf rack, and it’ll hold up to 5TB of single cell flash memory.
The rack drive will be able to deal with 250,000 sustained I/O’s per second, go through 3GB of data per second, and has an 80 microsecond write latency. It’s being claimed that for performance of this caliber using an HDD setup, it’d cost a half-million dollars and eat up 20 times the power.
No word yet on pricing or availability.
