NexGen Storage n5 Storage System
says companies traditionally have faced a choice when it comes to storage: They could either have more speed or more capacity. Or put another way, they could get a speedy SSD that delivers speed but creates bottlenecks or they could use a hard disk drive that will give them more space but less speed. The reason for this has to do with how SSDs are typically integrated into storage architecture. The company says its PCIe-based offering, the n5 Storage System, can deliver 22 times more I/O than standard SSDs that are located behind storage controllers and are 43% less expensive than SSDs behind storage controllers. The boxes start at 32TB of storage and scale to 480TB. The NexGen n5 Storage System costs $88,000, though pricing varies based on the reseller.
