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.
