+ - LSI sets a new standard in storage density->

Submitted by

secmartin writes "Up until yesterday, Sun was the leader in high-density storage systems; they have servers that will hold 48 SATA drives in a 4U chassis, a design that's being copied by many storage firms. But now LSI has one-upped Sun by launching a storage array that supports up to 60 drives in the same 4U of rackspace; that means you can have over a petabyte of raw capacity in a standard rack. There's also new SSD support; they provide more details in a couple of YouTube videos.

The new disk array is meant as an add-on for their Engenio 7900 storage system; but this new design will probably available as a standalone unit soon, since it is already in use at several of their HPC customers. Will this be the last major overhaul for large disk storage systems before flash-based storage takes over?"
