NAND Flash - The Most Disruptive Technology in 50 Years
NAND Flash is poised to be the most disruptive technology to come along in quite some time. Does it signal the end of hard disk drives? Not exactly. In the following video taken from the Innotech Conference in Portland, Mark Teter discusses NAND flash, its benefits and barriers to entry, and the state of the hard drive.
- NAND flash can replace up to 1,000 disk drives with its performance
- Uses 1/5 the power of hard drives making it one of the greenest technologies available
- Little or no power consumption when it’s not being used
- The price of NAND flash should likely be reduced 50% in the next 12 months
Mark Teter is CTO of Advanced Systems Group, and frequent speaker at technology conferences. Stay tuned for additional video blogs from Mark on how to leverage flash, the top 5 barriers to cloud computing solutions growth, and the cloud computing decision framework.
