Faster Faster Faster said the little steam engine: 12Gbps Solid State Drives


Seagate and Western Digital are both planning the release of 12Gbps Solid State Drives for Enterprise which will double the current 6Gbps throughput over the SAS interface. The drives will have 2 data paths so if one fails the drive will still function. These should hit the market in 2013 and should be backwards compatible with current architecture.

So what does that mean for us? As faster solid state drives hit the higher end SAN and Server market where it is worth paying a price premium for speed it will have a trickle down effect. Expect to see more solid state disks in servers where space is not critical (e.g. for Operating system drives) and larger solid state disks in laptops – and not just in the higher end models.

Reliability and speed will also improve along with cost decreases over time as volumes ramp up.
