FAST Paper Casts Doubt on SSD Future

At last month's FAST (File and Storage Technologies) conference, researchers from UCSD and Microsoft Research presented a paper, titled "The Bleak Future of NAND Flash Memory" that's put the rosy all-flash-all-the-time future predicted by some in doubt for the long term. The gist of the paper's argument is that the physics of flash, and the researchers' testing, indicate that as flash density increases, the life and performance of flash will degrade to the point that by 2024 flash will no longer be a viable solution.
