I am surprised by the power consumption comparison. 6.9 kW SSD vs 10 kW HDD. I'd have expected much more difference, with no moving parts and all.

Bottom line is I've moved to a mix of SSDs and standard HDDs for my storage. Using the smaller SSD for that being accessed a lot and the HDDs more for longer term bulk storage. I'm no longer willing to live with the slower performing HDDs, but certainly not yet willing pay the extra $$$ for 1TB of SSDs either :-)

The "world" may never know that answer to the reliability question. Bottom line is that the hard drive market continues to advance at an astonishing rate with pricing moving farther from the ssd's.

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.
