This interview is the series’ 86th episode covering the world of storage. These guys do a fantastic job of probing this industry with great enthusiasm and insight.
This episode is a 40-minute compendium of the sights and goings-on at the August 2019 Flash Memory Summit along with observations on the industry in general. It’s not strictly structured, and not strictly serious, but just three industry insiders having a lot of fun sharing their observations.
Some of the broad range of subjects that we discussed during the episode were:
- Computational Storage: Putting data into an SSD that you hope not to have to read back out
- Toshiba’s new XL-Flash that hopes to compete against Optane SSDs
- Optane DIMMs and Intel’s money-losing strategy to gain market acceptance
- 3D NAND flash up to 800+ layers high, and 5-bit cells (“PLC”)
