Samsung SSD Awesomeness Goes Viral
The Viral Factory London has hit paydirt with a video featuring Samsung’s new SSD (Solid State Drive), made by the company’s IT guy. They needed to develop a campaign that would grab the attention of people responsible for servers delivering applications such as video-on-demand, Internet data centers and online transaction processing. SSD Awesomeness was the answer.
Paul the IT guy and his colleagues managed to persuade Samsung to provide 24 256GB Samsung MLC SSDs, worth a mint, and put them in RAID to make an awesome computer that could open all applications within seconds. RAID stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks.
