But love can be expensive. Without offering an exact price tag, Pollack said the solid-state array cost AOL about $20 per gigabyte, which adds up to about $1 million with 50TB of capacity.

And, while the array didn't offer the 1 million-plus I/Os per second (IOPS) that vendor marketing material boasts, it does come in at around 250,000 IOPS, which Pollack said is more than enough for his purposes.


Do u want one? :sol:

AOL is still alive? For some damn reason, 50TB seems small....
