EMC redefines its flash future


Even the Name is not Original

Sun released their Lightning F5100 Flash only array and F20 Flash PCIe card in Sept 2009....they made the mistake IMHO of making the F5100 array SAS only attach which made it difficult to share in HA environments.

Server side flash sounds great but applications with high IO and low latency are also typically mission critical and need high availability. Any thoughts on making the data HA between multiple clustered server nodes?

Bruised Iron Mountain gives up on storage cloud


What about Mimosa?

I wonder if this has any impact on their Mimosa product range or will it mean increased focus on their Mimosa product and hybrid cloud offerings.
