IBM flash memory fastest ever data transfer

Network World (US) reports IBM is claiming a major breakthrough in flash storage, with a research project that's delivering data transfer speeds of more than 1 million input/output operations per second. That's two and a half times faster than the industry's fastest disk storage.

IBM said that Project Quicksilver combined solid-state flash memory with IBM's storage virtualisation technology. 'Quicksilver improved performance by 250% at less than 1/20th the response time, took up 1/5th the floor space and required only 55% of the power and cooling,' IBM said.
