And the Beat Goes On

Some more industry news. Compellent Technologies is a smallish (relative to EMC) storage subsystem supplier. They qualified the STEC SSD drives some time ago; among the earliest to do so.

The have confabs, as do most vendors. They put out a press release for their recent meeting. Compellent doesn't, so far as I can find out, care whether they ship HDD or SSD subsystems. But they did run a survey during the fest, and found that 91% of their business partners (78% of customers; i.e. the sheep need to be led) checked the boxes for "I really need to do SSD" and the like. The train keeps gathering speed. Now, we just need for the CIO types to realize that SSD systems have much more innovative/disruptive implications for application design.

Tick. Tick. Tick.

Here is the PR.
