IBM plugs SanDisk's flashy JBOF rig into its spectrum


What an odd profile?

When is someone going to build a 1RU rack mount box that uses flash devices that are about one inch tall and 500 mm deep. That way up to about 64 hot swappable flash devices could be slid in to a 1 RU rack mount device. If the bus connector was PCIe and SATA then a universal standard host could support a massive about of JBOF at speeds ranging from cheap to blindingly fast.

Of course there needs to be much better support for 4,608 byte sectors so ECC can flow from all the way from storage to the CPU registers.
