Marvel (MRVL) and SanDisk (SNDK), rivals in the solid-state drive (SSD) controller space, are partnering to offer a low-power server solution that features an ARM-based Marvell processor and a SanDisk SSD. Marvell is aggressively targeting the young ARM server market, and has already reached deals with Dell and Taiwan's MiTAC. Also: Marvell is announcing the general availability of its praised DragonFly flash caching solution, which competes with offerings from FIO, STEC, and others. (NTAP/FIO)
