Do the Limbo Rock

There's been some whoopla recently about OCZ's latest drives, and the SandForce controller used. Today, AnandTech looks at the latest of the latest, the Agility 3. Of most interest to this endeavor is the background on NAND architecture.

What's it all mean, Mr. Natural? Well, with respect to Enterprise (or even SMB) systems, not much I expect. OCZ and SandForce remain, so far as I can determine, firmly in the consumer/prosumer territory. Until SF drives start showing up from a major vendor, of course (there's not been an announcement from SF, yet). I don't see that happening, what with the implementation of encrypted/compressed data in industrial strength databases. Workgroup/internal document storage, may be.
