Sun has laid out more of its plans for using solid-state drives in its servers, which it says will help customers to reduce energy costs and improve application performance in the data center.
Storage manufacturer Seagate will release its first SSD (solid-state drive) for enterprises by the middle of next year, CEO Bill Watkins said on Tuesday.
Intel has started shipping new solid-state flash drives designed for servers, workstations and storage devices. Intel announced the move Wednesday with Sun, which pledged to deliver storage products using Intel's flash technology.
Solid-state drives are fast becoming popular replacements for hard drives, especially in laptops, but experts caution that SSDs aren't as secure as commonly thought.
