SanDisk to introduce new NAND flash-based accelerator for PC

SanDisk unveiled a solid-state storage solution, Vaulter Disk, that works in conjunction with a PC's hard drive to store and launch the computer's operating system and software applications. This new solution aims to provide enhanced performance over a PC that has only a hard drive. Vaulter Disk will be offered to OEMs in early 2008 in capacities of 8-16GB.

By introducing the Vaulter Disk, which is a flash-based PCI Express module, both laptop and desktop computer manufacturers are able to harness the speed of embedded flash memory for frequently accessed files while continuing to use a spinning hard drive for bulk storage of less frequently accessed data, said SanDisk.
