SanDisk Vaulter Disk

SanDisk today introduced a new solid state storage solution - called the Vaulter Disk - that works in tandem with a computer's hard drive to store and launch the operating system and applications. The module is a PCI Express-based chip that comes in 8GB and 16GB sizes, and is designed to store frequently used applications and documents. While specifications haven't been announced, Sandisk says that the Vaulter increases performance in a PC quite significantly by working in parallel with the hard drive, providing faster access to both frequently used documents as well as unexpected user access. Pricing for the Vaulter Disk was not yet mentioned.

"SanDisk Vaulter Disk consistently boosts user responsiveness by taking advantage of the best native characteristics of a flash-based module and a hard drive," said Tavi Salomon, Vaulter product manager at SanDisk. "It is the parallel operation of both Vaulter and the hard disk that provides an affordable solution for consumer PC users who will benefit from flash memory performance."

    SSD not viable

    SSD's will not be viable until they get over the 100gig mark. Until then it's all conjecture. Especially this, 16gb, really? I mean c'mon!
