Intel demonstrates the power of solid state disks

Posted on Tuesday, October 21 2008 @ 00:16:56 CEST by

TweakTown saw an extreme demonstration of the power of SSDs at Intel's Developer Forum. Intel showed off a case in which the SSD used 46x less power, used 75 percent less space and was 6x faster than hard disk drives:
This demo displayed (view the video we shot below) an IPTV HD broad deployment system with one server using hard drives and the other using Intel SSDs. The traditional HDD system required a massive 36 hard drives (75GB SAS 15k RPM drives to be exact) to produce about 440 HD streams in a production environment.

On the other hand, when it came to showcasing the SSD based system, it only required eight Intel X-25M 80GB SSD drives to produce 450 HD streams in the same production environment. The SSD system fits into 2u rack space and the HDD system requires much more room, using 8u rack space. When it comes to power – and that is probably the biggest thing to take note of here, the HDD system chewed up about 768 watts of power whereas the SSD system only required a staggeringly slow 16.8 watts of power.
