Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) 15.5 Performance Evaluation Using Fusion-Io Solid State Memory
Solid State Disk (SSD) is a technology that utilizes flash based solid-state memory to store data. SSD completely eliminates the use of mechanical components (e.g. disk spindle) of Hard Disk Drive (HDD), thus eliminating the risk of mechanical failure. The key benefit of SSD over HDD is a significant reduction in I/O latency for both read and write, while delivering higher IOPS, I/O bandwidth and maintaining low power consumption. SSD is increasingly being utilized in today's mission-critical and high performance enterprise systems.
