Intelligent flash storage arrays

Stan Shih, chairman of Taiwan PC giant Acer, has been talking about his XC idea now for nearly two years. But, if reports from the island are to be believed, the XC platform is now likely to see the light of day, bigtime, in March of next year. Shih, at last year's Computex trade show, outlined his plans for the XC and said that the cheap, all purpose devices could revolutionise the PC industry, rejuvenate Taiwan, and put computing and Internet power into the hands of the masses. The reports say that Shih now says Acer has developed five platforms and over 12 XC products products will be released next March. He also projected sales of over a million XCs in the first year. ®
