From TechWorld (via Slashdot): “The US government has just bought the world’s biggest ever solid state disk from Texas Memory Systems.”

  • “The 2.5TB system is the largest SSD installation in the world so far, without question, the executive VP for TMS, Woody Hutsell, told Techworld….So where is it and what’s it to be used for?…What that means in simple English is that the US government has just bought the world’s biggest RAM drive in order to speed up cross-checking across several vast databases.”
