    LSI Corporation today announced it is sampling a PCI Express (PCIe)-based solid-state storage (SSS) solution to OEM customers. The LSISSS6200 PCIe SSS card provides a high-performance storage solution with enhanced reliability and industry-leading storage density for enterprise servers. For easy system integration and management, the card uses the industry-standard SAS protocol and widely deployed LSI SAS software. The card is designed to maximize transactional I/O performance for applications such as Web serving, data warehousing, data mining, online transaction processing and high-performance computing.

    "Future customer requirements related to price, performance, power consumption and reliability align well with the benefits of solid-state storage," said Jeff Janukowicz, research manager, Hard Disk Drive Components and Solid State Drives at IDC. "PCIe-based SSS solutions, such as the LSISSS6200, can reliably meet next-generation data center needs with an improved price-to-performance ratio compared to traditional storage solutions."

    Offering high performance with low latency and a low CPU burden, the small form factor PCIe card delivers up to 200,000 4K sequential I/Os per second (IOPS) and up to 150,000 4K random IOPS. It achieves bandwidth of 1,500MB/s sustained sequential I/O and 1,200MB/s sustained random I/O, regardless of read/write mix. Storage capacity of up to 300GB can be configured in a single PCIe slot with no external power requirement. Using industry-standard LSI software drivers, the card provides support for all major operating systems and helps OEM customers achieve a faster time to market.

    "The new LSISSS6200 card utilizes the industry's most widely deployed software stack to deliver an enterprise-capable, drop-in storage solution," said Steve Fingerhut, senior director of marketing, Storage Components Division, LSI. "Providing customers with a new tier of storage between system memory and low-cost disk drives, without sacrificing reliability or simplicity, PCIe-based SSS solutions represent the next evolution in storage architectures for market segments requiring extreme performance."

    LSI brings decades of enterprise-level experience in the design, manufacture and support of storage products for critical applications. LSI is already deeply engaged in delivering solid-state storage technologies, from custom silicon to storage systems. Bringing the proven engineering capabilities and global scale of LSI to the development of PCIe-based SSS solutions will help pave the way to market segment maturity and broad enterprise adoption.

    I wonder when these will become affordable :( I'd happily pay 10-15$/GB for this (30GB for 300-450$ :p), but I'm guessing that won't happen anytime soon

    There's probably going to be 100-core desktop CPUs before these become something that resembles mainstream.

    I really want a PCIe SSD more than anything else currently on the market.

    This is not really a consumer product, unless you are rich. It is really cheap for a business to have this kind of power. We got an FusionIO drive for our database and really fast.

    Which regular home user need that much speed? 1.5GB read per sec??? Even you get one, you will probably never really use it at it full potential.

    Consumer current SSD are a lot cheaper than that and RAIDed can have interesting power.

    1k$ for 80GB would be ok as a price IMO, for serious enthusiast. if it is bootable of course

    Since the Fusion-IO is still not bootable, I doubt this one will, they would have announced it if it was the case.

    4 of these in an i7 based server would have some serious throughput

    I don't understand why these are so expensive?

    All it is, is an ssd on a pci card, so it should be in the same price region as an ssd? :shadedshu
