Big Data Done Cheap

Quentin Hardy for NYTimes about Violin Memory data cards.

The Violin Memory data cards, produced in conjunction with Toshiba, offer 1.4 terabytes in “flash” memory, which can be accessed quickly. Cards for higher-end servers hold up to 11 terabytes.

Everything’s sounds great, right?

The low-end Violin Memory card has a list price of $4,000, and is intended for use in a server costing even less than that. A bigger card, for the kind of server that costs $5,000 or more, lists for about $60,000.

Cheap can mean so many things.
