The 12 Days of Solid State Storage

The 12 days of solid state storage

In the spirit of Christmas and the holidays, I thought it would be appropriate for a slight change from the usual blog entry today. In this case you need to think about the classic song The Twelve Days of Christmas. I promise not to dive into the origins of the song and the meaning behind it, but I will provide an alternate version of the words to think about when you are with your family singing Christmas carols.

Rather than write out all the 12 separate choruses, I decided to start with the final chorus on the 12th day.

Sung to the tune of The 12 Days of Christmas

On the 12th day of Christmas my true love gave to me

Twelve second boot times,

Eleven data reduction benefits,

Ten nm-class flash,

Nine flash channels,

Eight flash chips,

Seven percent over provisioning,

Six gigabits per second,

Five golden edge connectors,

Four PCIe lanes,

Third generation controller,

Two interfaces in one package,

And a SandForce Driven SSD.

Maybe if you were good this year, Santa will bring you a SandForce Driven SSD to revitalize your computer too! Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all!
