Fujitsu Dismisses Flash Memory Performance, Reliability; Favors HDD Over SSD

Longtime GBM forum member and community participant Gavin Miller has just sent this intriguing article from Computerworld who interviewed Joel Hagberg, Fujitsu’s Vice President of business development. In the face of stiffening competition in the SSD market and with prices dropping and capacity increasing across the board for SSD, Fujitsu has chimed in with reasons as to why the company has resisted the industry trend of shifting towards a solid state medium. Of course, as a manufacturer of HDD’s, Fujitsu has a vested interest in the HDD market, but it still makes an interesting read in terms of how far SSD’s still have to go to displace the traditional HDD. Thanks Gavin!
