1Solid-State Memory Will Kill HHDs
SSD (solid-state drive) storage will ultimately kill HHD (hybrid hard drive) disk storage. Not everyone will agree. It could take years, perhaps even a full generation, but spinning disk storage will give way to the simpler, more efficient solid-state form factor. Here’s why SSD storage will kill HHD storage.
2Solid-State Memory Will Kill HHDs – High Reliability, Improved Longevity
1. High Reliability, Improved LongevitySpansion, which with partner Virident is now producing EcoRAM, described as “flash on steroids” by industry insiders, has come up with a next-generation type of solid-state memory that has run rings around the conventional product in primary and beta testing. More of this kind of development is happening and will be coming to the fore during the next few years.

6Solid-State Memory Will Kill HHDs – Capacities Quickly Improving
7Solid-State Memory Will Kill HHDs – Lower Power Requirements
6. Lower Power RequirementsNo moving parts equals less power needed. “We expect Spansion EcoRAM can help slash energy consumption by up to 75 percent in Internet data center servers and offer four times the memory capacity of traditional DRAM-only servers for the same energy consumption,” Spansion President and CEO Bertrand Cambou said.
