    It will be interesting to see when/whether the big cloud computing providers will be able to provide boxes with lots of solid-state memory, so that you could run your scalable database system “in the cloud” while getting the benefits of this kind of hardware.

    One clarification worth mentioning here is regarding our use of solid state disks (SSDs). All of our innovation is in the software we have developed and the fully/truly distributed and parallel nature of our database architecture. This is what gives us the orders of magnitude advantage in scalability over any such system available on the market today. Use of SSDs in our system is not considered any sort of strategic advantage, but is just a practical selection for database applications because they provide a compelling I/O per dollar ratio.
