Solid State Drive Arrays For Large Data Storage Requirements

I am wondering if any of you have used arrays of SSDs for fast data retrieval of large chunks of data? I have a client whose spec requires 120 TB of data to be accessed most expediently, and he specifically is looking for SSDs as a candidate media. This data will be written once, and read many times, so it should not be too harsh on the SSDs’ longevity.


Will the 120TB be access by a large cluster or by end-users on workstations?

Is the 120TB be accessed all at once or can it be subdivided?

Take a look at the Gridiron Systems TurboCharger. A 2.5 TB system (SSD-based) can accelerate up to 50 TB of back-end storage. It designed specifically for read intensive environments. Here’s their product page:

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at
