At the recent Flash Memory Summit, Michael Cornwell, lead technologist for flash memory at Sun, urged the industry to adopt or emulate Sun's NAND flash module strategy for high-end servers:
"During a frank and sobering keynote address at the Flash Memory Summit here, he said NAND vendors are going down the wrong path by racing each other in process technology--at the expense of customer needs. Few sub-50-nm parts are suitable for the high-end computing or enterprise market, due to reliability and endurance issues, he said. So, OEMs like Sun are looking to devise flash-based systems using trailing-edge but more reliable NAND, but the trouble is that those type of parts are in short supply, he said." Full Story
