With fast read and write I/O performance and incredibly low power requirements, solid-state drives (SSDs) based on flash memory technology are poised to disrupt the IT industry. Enterprise SSD technology is fully integrated into Sun servers from Oracle, including the Sun Blade, Sun x64, and Sun CoolThreads servers. Oracle’s integrated systems and software make it easy for you to instantly and efficiently take advantage of SSD technology.

Keeping high volumes of I/O flowing to and from systems is key to application performance. For some applications, the best way to improve performance has been to saturate the server with DRAM, so that much of the application’s data can reside in physical memory for low-latency access. For other applications, a large pool of 15 K rpm drives has often been used to increase I/O throughput for better appli-cation performance. Both of these approaches are costly and, as applications con-tinue to grow, it is becoming impractical to continue adding more high-speed disk drives that consume more and more datacenter space, power, and cooling resources.

Recent advances in the production of flash technology have made SSDs much more cost effective, creating a new opportunity for improving application performance through a new storage hierarchy. Flash technology completes operations in microseconds, placing it between hard disk drives (milliseconds) and RAM (nanoseconds) for access time. SSDs are significantly cheaper and denser than DRAM and also significantly faster than disks. Because flash technology contains no moving parts, it avoids the seek times and rotational latencies associated with traditional hard disk drives (HDDs) and delivers increased reliability.

Sun systems are the first to integrate flash technology across the entire systems portfolio. The technology has been designed not just for Tier 0 storage or for boot devices, but also for overall application acceleration. SSDs can be used along with HDDs to enhance performance at lower cost per I/O operations per second (IOPS), or as a means to reduce DRAM requirements by providing a high-performance cache that is much more cost effective.
