June 26, 2008 07:15 ET -- A Dedicated Enterprise-Class Solid-State Disk Blog

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - June 26, 2008) -

WHO: Wade Tuma, founder of Solid Data Systems, Mark Hayashida, vice president of systems architecture and chief technology officer, Jerry Martuscelli, director of sales and customer service, plus a host of solid state disk (SSD) industry experts will blog about all things related to enterprise-class SSDs.

WHAT: About -- All SSDs are not created equal, and we started this blog to separate the reality from the hype. With participation from and throughout the blogosphere, we will challenge the mainstream perceptions and misconceptions of SSDs and illuminate all on the role that this technology can play in an enterprise data center.

In general, there are two classes of SSD on the market today: Flash-based and DRAM-based. It is often difficult to have a discussion on one without the other creeping into the conversation at some point. Indeed, a thread on the differences between these two versions of SSD would be a worthy topic. Ultimately, though, the core focus of this blog will center on DRAM SSDs and the "Why, When, How and Where" to use them.

WHEN: Online today
