"Well, a pretty nice dorm room considering the cost of twenty-four SSDs… maybe these guys drive BMWs…."

Hi, your colleague Richard Jones knows that I'm a big fan of virtual synchrony protocols ;-) are the foundation of many H/A cluster and replication products. HP's federated array of bricks [1] used similar protocols: a grid of COTS servers with local disks and distributed replication. Suppose those bricks used SSDs instead. Can you imagine? What's a storage array in the new world, can I run my VMs there too ;-)
