Taking SSD's to The Extreme

I received an email from a guy calling himself Vincenzo from and he asked me if I could re-post a Youtube video his group did for Samsung to demonstrate the awesomeness potential for their SSD (Solid State Drives).

I get a lot of random solicitation emails through my contact form on the blog, so I decided to check it out to see if it was Bauer-Power worthy. Well, guess what... It is! These guys take 24 SSD drives, and RAID them together for 6TB of storage, and some eye popping performance!

From their Youtube description:

We took 24 256GB Samsung MLC SSD's and put them in RAID to make this awesome computer! See how we did it, and what the results were!

Here is their video:

Pretty crazy right? I mean, opening up all of Microsoft Office in 0.5 Seconds? I can't even get Outlook to open in under 30 seconds by itself on my work computer!

Any of you out there going to try this? Have any of you tried something similar? Let me know in the comments!
