Intel killer - the Solidata X2-128 is not, but it is still a hell of a drive. The problem is that we have other drives that we have looked at in recent weeks perform at the same level of the X2-128, but come in at a lower and sometimes much lower cost.
All is not lost for the Solidata X2 Series. We have the X2-256 in house and the early benchmark numbers show that it is a much stronger performer than the X2-128. The X2 Series drives are designed to work in a RAID configuration for enterprise users and because of that there are certain optimizations at work. Luckily we were able to get our hands on the Solidata RAIDpak and the appropriate Areca RAID controller that really lets the drives breath through the PCIe bus.
I didn't want to finish this article as a preview to another one, but that is really what we're left with. The X2-128 didn't live up to what we were expecting, but knowing that the X2-256 performs much better leaves us wanting to get the cat out of the bag much sooner.
