5 intriguing facts on SSD

The 1st  modern SSD was developed by StorageTek in 1978 (which was acquired 27 years later by Sun for US$4.1 billion)

Google plan to use Intel’s SSD in Production Search Systems in Q2 2008 – The company’s adoption of solid state drives will save energy, speed search, and potentially lead to a shortage of 16-GB and 32-GB NAND flash chips…

Prices for SSD drives are expected to halve every ~9 months (!!!)

In the future everything will be on SSD ;)

We have bought a simple OCZ 128GB – SATA II 2.5 SSD for benchmarking and we are not too happy with it yet.
