I was having another stimulating conversation in silicon valley last night, and one of the ideas that made sense is for solid state memory servers to be part of the cloud computing option. It’s just a matter of time. Amazon has their current instance offerings with a division of performance and memory.
It took longer than I thought, but SSD has arrived to the AWS and I am sure it will be a standard expectation for high data IO services.
