    If you find this blog interesting, and either have an interest in or work in data protection/backup and recovery environments, you should check out my book, Enterprise Systems Backup and Recovery: A Corporate Insurance Policy. Designed for system administrators and managers alike, it focuses on features, policies, procedures and the human element to ensuring that your company has a suitable and working backup system rather than just a bunch of copies made by unrelated software, hardware and processes.

Aside – The exciting world of SSD

Posted by Preston on 2009-09-23

The Register has some coverage at the moment of Intel demonstrating a (highly customised/optimised) 7 disk SSD configuration which delivered 1 million IOPS on a desktop configuration. As the article says, regardless of the level of tweaking to get there, this is a fabulous example of the world that is to come with SSD.

Clearly this is still a while off from regular commercial use for the “average” business, but regardless, it’s a fascinating development.

There’s good cause, when you look at these sorts of figures, to see why most storage vendors are getting onto the SSD bandwagon and declaring SSDs to be the “zeroth tier” in storage performance.
