SSD Drives - 800M bytes/second sustained throughput

Have you every heard a hard drive die? Click, Clunk … soon those days will be just mere memories! those clever boffins out there have begun turning out Solid State (hard) Drives (SDD) that can operate at far faster speed, and in more harsh environments than our tradition spin and read drives.

Here’s a review of the progress in that area this year
