This Flash Will Hold A Lot Of Pictures
By marchamilton on Oct 22, 2009
Ever run out space on your digital camera's flash card? Well, this flash won't quite fit in your camera, but at 1.92 TB in 1RU, my good friends at SmugMug will be using their new flash, a Sun Storage F5100 Flash Array to store a lot of pictures. Just how fast is it, or how long would it take to store all the pictures from 1000, 2GB digital camera flash cards onto the F5100? Lets just say SmugMug CEO Don MacAskill called it "crazy fast" in his Twitter post. I guess that is a technical term in the photographic industry. All kidding aside, Don, who is clearly an avid photographer, has also been an avid user of Sun technology over the years, and writes about both in his blog. I look forward to hearing about how SmugMug is using their new F5100 in the coming weeks.
