I think Gsrtner is correct. HDDs will be used as bulk storage in the data center for a long time to come. Capacities will reach 10TB next year, and maybe 20TB by 2016, but all of the fast drive functions as primary storage are being taken over by flash and SSD.

SSD will replace fast HDD.


@Jim, I think it will take time for SSD's to completely replace HDD. I recently read a garner report which predicted that Solid-State drives will complement, not replace, hard-Disk drives in data centers.

These little pocket drives are a huge cause of data leakage in organizations.

@Hailey, I totally agree with you. I think many companies dont allow USB devices inside the office premises because they feel it might compromise the data security.

@Jim: I think SSD will become the mainstream drive soon but a lot depends on the cost. So far the cost is still pretty high which makes HDD the first choice. Once the cost differential gets lower we shall see many more laptops with SSD being shipped.

Business systems should have the USB ports disabled!

@Jim, i'm sure you won't be suprised by my saying this... but teh USB hard drives always make me nervous from a corporate security standpoint. These little pocket drives are a huge cause of data leakage in organizations.

Hi Hailey. Most users only need a 64GB drive for their notebook or desktop disk. 128GB should work for business use.

People who download a huge amount might want an external USB hard drive for a terabyte of capacity. (Note the external..it allows portability to other systems)

@Hailey: Yes I too think being ignorant is something which makes things worse. Im not sure why we ignore certain factors when we clearly see the importance of it. Not sure whether there is an additional layer above ignorance to control ignorance ?
