Hands-on with the Crucial Adrenaline SSD caching drive at Storage Visions 2012

Don't want to get rid of your hard drives just yet? Consider this solution then

| Storage News | Posted: Jan 8, 2012 10:42 pm

Alright, so our first video from Las Vegas this year at CES is from Storage Visions 2012 where we ran into Rob from Micron. He was a little reluctant at first, but we managed to get him on video to give us a little hands-on and some details about their newest product called the Crucial Adrenaline.

 

 

This is an SSD drive that will be coming out sometime soon (we are guessing late January to early February timeframe) and it will come with a capacity of 50GB. Why only 50GB? You shouldn't really think of this drive as a traditional SSD, it's a caching drive. It is designed to complement your existing system and introduce some of the performance benefits you can see from flash based storage.

It works in tandem with your current HDD setup and the Adrenaline caches the most common files that you use to provide an easy to install and afford boost to system performance. We've already been told we can expect a review sample in the next two weeks and you can probably expect to see it go on sale just a little after that based on previous products we have got in from Crucial to review.
