A Better Mousetrap

Here (scroll to 6 May) is an assessment of STEC in the SSD space. Not surprisingly, to me at least, is that Zsolt reaches the same conclusion I have: SSD vendors have to make the case for the device. Just saying that "it's faster" will never cut it unless (very low probability) and until NAND, or its successor, reaches physical density commensurate with rotating rust.

As this endeavor postulates, BCNF relational databases for transactional systems on pure SSD storage is the sweet spot for vendors. The "Tier-0" approach au courant with storage vendors only consumes a pittance of drives. I'm getting closer to volunteering to head STEC's marketing department.
