With the onset of ever-increasing storage space on flash drives is it ok to ask the experts here if the hard drive technology will soon be obsolete only to be overtaken by flash drives and 3D memory chips?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’m not an expert on hard drive but here is what I think, It is possible that hard drive will disappear but I think that the Flash hard drive will be use more for getting faster cash I/O than replacing hard drive. Look a the new SUN NAS. they are using 10k RPM SATA drive disk with flash drive and the seem to have the fastest NAS of the industries. But technology wise I would say get ride of all mechanics and yesonly electronics part. so you illuminate a point of failure. The day we will see flash drive of TB is probably not far ahead but to replace hard drive that is something else.

Last week I had a chat with one of the main storage vendor and they are going fast forward on flash drive. It seam that hard disk drive will extinct and sooner that I thought.

Here is an article that ask good questions when a company think on changing to flash SSD drive

    I think they may be on there way out. With flash drives and SSD drives getting smaller and using less power that means longer battery life. IT also means a device will run cooler..I see it still a few years away at least, I don't think they will replace HD's for system backups until the storage can hit the 2TB+ level.
