Formation of Hybrid Storage Alliance to push "flashy" new hard drives
Hitachi, Seagate, Fujitsu, Toshiba, and Samsung have joined forces to form the Hybrid Storage Alliance. The group will promote new "hybrid" drives that combine traditional hard drive technology (platters and spindles, oh my!) with massive quantities of flash memory. Why bother? From the looks of it, hybrid storage is all that and a slice of pie.
"NAND caching will emerge as an important technology enabler, especially to improve the performance of portable PCs running the Windows Vista OS," said John Rydning, IDC's Research Manager for hard drives. "Hybrid hard drives combine the best features of two storage technologies in a single product to deliver high capacity, responsive storage for portable PC users. Formation of the Hybrid Storage Alliance by HDD industry participants is prudent to raise awareness of hybrid HDD technology benefits."
