"Flash technology has been one of the hottest data storage technologies in the last year or so, finding its way into everything from PCs to high-end networked storage from the likes of EMC (NYSE: EMC).

"In enterprises, OEMs typically package flash as solid state drives (SSDs), which emulate hard disk drives (HDDs) in many devices.

""Flash memory can improve the performance and reduce the total cost of ownership of your IT infrastructure, even though each SSD may carry a higher price tag per GB than the mechanical devices [HDDs] they replace," said Clipper Group analyst David Reine. "In fact, a single SSD can provide more IOPS than a chassis full of enterprise HDDs."

"Below are 10 of the cooler flash and solid state drive implementations. Limiting the list to 10 excluded many worthy candidates -- feel free to add your own favorite in the comment form at the bottom of the article -- and certainly the pace of innovation could soon make this list obsolete, but nonetheless, here's our stab at a list of Top 10 Cool SSD Implementations."
