    Sun Microsystems said today it is to remove hard drives from its servers and replace them with brand new SSDs later this year. "Flash SSD is the most exciting innovation to happen to system and storage design in over a decade. By mid-2009, it will be in the majority of servers and deliver more capacity than DRAM and far greater overall system performance and energy efficiency," said John Fowler, executive vice president, Systems Group, Sun Microsystems, Inc. "This technology will completely change how server and storage infrastructure is designed and deployed in enterprise data centers." Sun's SSDs will be optimized for MySQL database and other leading applications. The drives will work with Solaris OS ZFS file system. Sun is expected to deliver Flash-based products to market in the 2HCY08.
