Live From SNW: The SSD Has Arrived

There’s no dispute that solid state disks have arrived and arrived big time at Storage Networking World.

An early morning presentation on solid state storage for the enterprise drew a packed room.

If it had been held earlier in the week presenter Woody Hutsell, VP at Texas Memory Systems, predicts the line for a seat would have been out the door.

“Last year I was the only one talking on SSD, this year there were three presentations,” Hutsell told “And given this is the last day of the conference the attendance was amazing.”

Hutsell shared his presentation duties with Brian McKean, a storage architect for LSI.

Asked if maybe SSD deserved its ownpanel work session at the next show, Hutsell shook his head.

“I want it all to myself,” Hutsell said with a smile.
