Google ordering Intel SSDs

Sources at memory makers claim Google is going to experiment with solid state drives in some of its servers. DigiTimes says Intel has gained SSD orders from Google:
The more power efficient SSDs will be installed at severs at Google's US headquarters. Intel will supply flash chips and Marvell the corresponding controller ICs, the sources detailed. Shipments are slated for late second quarter, they added.

With the increasing use of SSDs in server applications, a shortage for 16Gb and 32Gb NAND flash chips could become a possibility, the sources commented.
