re: Facebook Wants Faster, Cheaper Storage
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.
