Interesting tech I found at Interop. They make little SSDs that plug into a SATA port and is powered from the port:

I am working on getting pricing. Size tops out at 128GB.

Might be a great boot devices on a server.

They're nothing new, really.  Pretty common in commercial servers.  A lot of server boards even have the power sockets for them (Asus are good for them).

Sorry if my post implied that I had made some earth shattering discovery. Yes, I am aware that DOM have been around for sometime. Most are industrial, SLC and expensive.

Innodisk seems to have a broad offering of form factor, memory type and capacity. Time will tell how their pricing looks.

It looks like the self powered feature is something specific to InnoDisk and you need motherboard support for it. They call it Pin 7 Technology. They've repurposed pin 7 on the SATA data connector from ground to supplying 5V instead. The other modification is to add a current limited switch to that pin so a regular SATA device doesn't short out the 5V power to one of the other ground pins.

Is it much different from using a ssd for the os?

A DOM is a SSD in a very small form factor. Edited by GotNoTime

A DOM is a SSD in a very small form factor.

And generally very slow speeds (or very high price).

 

May be great for a SFF system. But a M.2 compatible  board may be better.
