Thanks, I've asked the author, Michael Wei for an article on his work in this area. I'll post it when ready.

The thing that gets my attention about flash memory used in the enterprise is the difficulty ensuring that flash storage devices are actually free of information before being discarded. See the referenced article about this issue. http://www.infoworld.com/t/solid-state-drives/flash-based-solid-state-drives-nearly-impossible-erase-263 (see the source paper here http://www.usenix.org/events/fast11/tech/full_papers/Wei.pdf). I think that this issue will end up being a very big deal indeed.

It has indeed been very hot although very fragmented in shows. Checkout: Flash Memory Conference has been running for a few years now. (Santa Clara around Aug) Storage Visions at the Consumer Electronics Show JEDEC has quite a few working groups

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
