Sun says future of servers is in solid-state drives

Sun has revealed more about its plan to use solid-state drives in its servers, which it says will help customers to reduce energy costs and improve application performance in the data centre.

The company is offering SSDs which customers can slide into their storage bays, and in the future plans to integrate them onto the server motherboard to provide faster data access for I/O intensive applications, says Michael Cornwell, Sun's lead technologist of flash memory. This could mark a change in how Sun servers are designed, he says.
