"SSDs have been one of the hottest data storage
technologies in the last year, as users have been willing to pay up
for much greater performance even in a down economy. But to take
full advantage of SSD technology, users need management software to
fine-tune performance (see IBM Adds Solid State to High-End
Storage). Sun is breaking new ground by offering that capability
""Sun is taking a very aggressive position here," said Objective
Analysis analyst Jim Handy. "SSDs are nice, but without proper
software support, they really don't do much to help the system out.
That's why SSDs' penetration in the PC is still significantly below
1 percent. There is a lot of value in the kind of SSD support
software that ZFS includes."
