The Registerで、FAST '11のポスターセッションで発表された NetAppの
Project Mercuryについてコメントしています:

"Welcome to the server flash cache sofa"
 17th June 2011

  "Comment NetApp is involved with storage array management of
   flash caches in app servers - witness its Project Mercury
   presentation at the FAST '11 conference at San Jose in February."
  "The idea was to link a flash cache in the server to a shared,
   centrally-managed storage array so that virtual machines (VMs)
   and their storage could be moved between physical servers in
   a shared-pool datacentre without losing any I/O speed-up
   benefits from having a local flash cache."

"Dell app servers getting flashy"
 15th June 2011

  "Dell Storage Forum Dell is looking at putting flash in
   application servers. It will be seen as another tier of storage
   by EqualLogic and Compellent arrays."
  "Conceptually this is equivalent to EMC's Project Lightning and
   both are different from NetApp which has put its Flash Cache in
   the array controller and has no plans, as we understand it,
   to put solid state cache in servers."

"EMC redefines its flash future"
 10th May 2011

  "EMC World EMC is starting to bet its primary data farm on flash,
   announcing multi-level cell flash SSDs for its arrays, all-flash
   arrays and, in a surprise move, server-side flash integrated
   with array side flash, code-named Project Lightning."

冒頭の The Registerの記事で
  "TMS is not working on a way to make its PCIe RamSan-70 card
   shareable: "If the architecture needs… shared storage, use our
   shared storage systems."

   He is not saying server PCIe flash has no role in large scale
   server infrastructures needing co-ordination. This is how he
   sees that role:"
