Having just bought flash storage vendor Texas Memory, IBM is hoping to create a flash memory interconnect standard that can improve performance relative to existing technologies such as serial-attached SCSI. Efforts to build faster flash interfaces could have implications for Fusion-io (FIO), which has been able to deliver superior performance (and charge premium pricing) in part by doing away with conventional interconnect technologies. Many industry players are already supporting the NVMe and SCSI Express standards, which aim to improve flash performance.
