We've been very intrigued by the idea of a SandForce SF-1500 enterprise class drive attached to a SAS controller for several months now. At Computex we were actually in a room setup for engineers and manufacturer representatives when we really shouldn't have been.
After being discovered, we promised not to take our finding public as long as we could hang around a little and check everything out. The SMART Modular XceedIOPS is very similar to what we observed in that room. XceedIOPS is obviously more refined, but the principles are the same; take an already fast SF-1500 and bridge it to SAS.
The SMART Modular XceedIOPS will be available to OEMs and manufacturers of servers in the coming weeks. SMART Modular is the first company we've seen to actually have this type of product at this stage. Other companies have advertised future availability, but SMART has actually made it happen.
