Toshiba to Release 128G SSDs
It looks like Toshiba is about to start selling 128G SSDs.
Apparently, the NY Times has a piece on the pending SSD wars with Toshiba and SanDisk coming into the ring.
The specs of this new drive look interesting:
* SATA2 interface
* 100MB/s peak read speed
* 40MB/s peak write speed
* Average time before failure: 1,000,000 hours (114 years)
The 40MB/s write spec isn’t as interesting as the 80MB/s spec of the mtron drives but this getting there.
This also might be a good alternative for people who need larger databases.
