Psst, big biz, want an all-flash Windows Server box?
In a word, no.
Why on earth would I want such a dinosaur?
Flash array front runner Violin Memory can now run Windows Server inside its high-end arrays, giving the server OS access to up to 64TB of NAND with the ability to run all Windows enterprise applications in solid state storage. Violin and Microsoft have partnered to make Windows Server 2012 R2 use Violin flash better. …
The 90s called, they want their OS jihad back.
I'd like any kind of decent server running entirely in memory. The fact that it's Microsoft, or Windows, is irrelevant. WinServer is actually pretty frickin' good. Not likely to tempt me away from my Linux and BSD farms, but if SQL Server or Oracle was my business, you bet I would be checking this out. All the OS and the data in RAM, all the time? Hell yeah.
