Intel has started shipping new solid-state flash drives designed for servers, workstations and storage devices. It is partnering with Sun Microsystems in the initiative.
Last week, Intel said it was shipping its fastest SSD, the X-25E Extreme Serial Advanced Technology Attachment Solid-State Drive, potentially accelerating enterprise adoption of flash technology.
Sun says it will deliver multiple storage products using Intel's solid-state drives.
Intel's new flash drive comes in a 32GB capacity. A 64GB drive is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2009. Intel has already announced 80GB and 160GB flash drives for laptop and desktop computers.
