Here's a piece of hardware we'd all be excited to own if it weren't for the sky-high price tag that's typical of all things enterprise.


LSI who just recently announced their partnership with Seagate have begun samping their LSISSS6200 PCI-Express SSD for the enterprise server market. This storage solution is said to be capable of delivering up to 150,000 4K random I/Os per second and up to 1,500MB/s sustained sequential I/O and 1,200MB/sec sustained random I/O, irrespective of read/write mix. Up to 300GB drive capacity can be had on a single PCI-E slot card and without any form of additional power required.




"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."


As for actual pricing and a release date to select OEM customers, this we're not sure of just yet. For further information about the LSISSS6200 you can view the full press release here.
