Samsung 25GB and 50GB Enterprise SSDs

Samsung has started mass-production of 2.5″ 25GB and 50GB SSDs for the enterprise segment. The drives are built using single-level-cell NAND flash technology (consumer-based SSDs are generally constructed using multi-level-cell NAND because it is cheaper, but also less durable).

Samsung Enterprise Solid State DriveSamsung has started mass-production of 2.5" 25GB and 50GB SSDs for the enterprise segment.  The drives are built using single-level-cell NAND flash technology (consumer-based SSDs are generally constructed using multi-level-cell NAND because it is cheaper, but also less durable).  The new drives offer 100MB/s sequential read and 80MB/s sequential write speeds, consuming only 1.5W while operating and 0.3W idle.  While the Samsung solid state drives offer improved capacity for SLC and maintain a 100 times greater input/output operations per second (IOPS) lead over typical 2.5" 15,000-RPM hard drives, the performance does not come close to that provided by the Intel X25-E Extreme SSDs.

Intel Xeon 7460 Six Core Processor

Although most people are looking forward to the Intel Nehalem CPUs, an upgrade that maintains the mPGA604 socket platform is very attractive for many in the server space. Additional cores and performance tweaks can have a significant impact with server operations. Intel's Xeon 74xx series processors, formerly known as Dunnington, pack a mighty benefit in just moving up from a quad-core processor to hex-core solution, having six cores on a single die. However, the enormous 12MB to 16MB L3 cache also helps to ensure all six cores can access high performance main memory a lot more effectively. The massive L3 also limits the "cache syncing" traffic required between CPUs, which has been an important bottleneck for prior Intel server platforms. Boasting a 10% to 20+% performance increase per core, two additional cores per CPU package, and an easy upgrade path that only requires a BIOS update, the newest Xeon 7460 is certainly worth consideration for those that would prefer a simple upgrade for now.
