TMS RamSan - a 2GB/s SSD

If you're a regular reader, you've heard me talk about the SSD advantages over traditional rotating hard drives many times before. But, proving that even when talking about lightning fast SSDs there are "fast" and "faster", how about a SSD PCIe card capable of 2GB/s throughput?

That's exactly what you get with this TMS RamSan-70: 2 Gigabytes per second data transfers which would allow you to read its entire 900GB content in under 8 minutes. (For comparison, keep in mind that even a fast hard drive, doing 100MB/s, would take over 2 hours to do the same!)

Sure, I won't even dare asking the price of such a thing, but let's hope evolution does its thing and - within a couple of years - this type of performance may very well be within our grasp.
