Recently (link) IBM has announced to invest $1 billion in solid-state storage and primarily focusing on high performance storage banking upon flash memory's key differentiators like smaller foot print, speed, low power consumption etc.
This news made me think more upon future of IBM's storage product portfolio. With this significant investment happening, it is upto us to prove how best we can leverage this opportunity and how innovative we can infuse this new storage class with our existing products. It will be interesting to see the outcome once solid-state storage marry the existing storage offerings. I'm keeping my fingers crossed & thinking cap on. Are you?
Parallelly, I am also thinking about the security angles that this opportunity will bring. If you know some, please add a comment below.
