May 12, 2014 -- May 12, 2014 -- Will SSDS, as they become cheaper and cheaper, further affect the living space of mechanical hard drives, so that they will be completely discontinued in 2028?
HDDS will disappear from the market after 2028 and won't be sold anymore, according to an executive at Pure Storage, a storage solution and customized enterprise SSD device maker.
Later, this statement aroused the attention of the industry. The opinion was so extreme that some manufacturers and players refuted it. In everyone's opinion, big data storage can only be a mechanical hard disk, which is incomparable to SSD.
In addition, Pure Storage's statement is also interesting, an SSD as the core business of the company, publicly shout the "death time" of mechanical hard disk, which is somewhat inappropriate, so it is also criticized by the outside world.
In fact, with the support of a variety of new technologies, HDDS still have some advantages in some application scenarios. At least at this stage, we haven't seen a large-scale shift from HDDS to SSDS in data centers.
In addition to consuming more power than SSDS, HDDS are now particularly vulnerable in public opinion due to the declining cost per unit capacity, increased storage density, and performance advantages of SSDS.
