A bird's eye view of the data storage industry.

SSD Slide Show Zooms Off Like a Saturn V

You never know what's going to tickle the readers' fancies here at eWEEK.

Take today, for example: The Station put together a slide show on new products in the solid-state storage sector, and wowsie, did that one explode off the blocks (an ancient track & field analogy). The news desks in New York and San Francisco watched the thing take off like a Saturn V (now THAT analogy will date me, for sure) near the end of the day on the East Coast. Nearly 6,000 page views in the first hour, 12,000 after hour 2 ... and so on.

This is good for us to know because it tells us a lot about what our readers are seeking. There's a lot of interest in SSD storage, that much we already knew. We just didn't know exactly how much.

So we'll keep our eyes on the ball and do some more of these for you. The question I have for you now, my beloved Storage Station reader, is this: What else would you like to see us present for you?

As Dr. Frasier Crane liked to say: "I'm listening." (Comments welcome below.)
