Would cold flash have consumer applications also, or just something huge operations are concerned about?

Leading Flash suppliers say the continued suspicions cast on Flash's reliability are at this point FUD, spread by established storage makers in danger of being disrupted by SSDs. They probably have that right..

Disk drive manufacturers offer different quality grades, performance characteristics and capacities. I think the Flash industry should respond to this request even as it continues to try to live down quality and reliability problems from the early days. Facebook's image problem is hardly unique. Archiving for record-keeping is a huge market, and compliance mandates often require rapid retrieval of documents and data. Build "Cold Flash" and they will come.
