CES 2013 - Our resident storage editors Chris Ramseyer and Paul Acorn are down in Las Vegas right now for CES 2013 and hit up Storage Visions before the big show kicks off tomorrow. They've just taken a look at Marvell's DragonFly NVDRIVE + SanDisk X100 SSD and we have a video about it below.

The Marvell DragonFly NVDRIVE sports a SanDisk X100 SSD which is an mSSD module that are connected to the drive and will rock up in various sizes. There's a super capacitor strapped to the DragonFly NVDRIVE which protects the drive (and data) in case of power loss, an NDA controller.

The drive connects through a PCIe 2.0 interface, and the drive will be used in server environments, such as Google or Facebook's servers.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
