Connector specification and hotplug need a fix sooner rather than later. A consolidation of connector will avoid consumer carrying 10 different cables. Hotplug will keep data from losing. It is the biggest problem so far to my experience. Cache may help too. What else do you think is important?

There are a lot of directions that this can take. Keeping the SSD defined as a mass storage device means maintaining a file system, but it might be quite different than the traditional ones (NTFS, etc.). The SSD could also morph into an extension of main memory with an appropriate execute-in-place definition. I'll be watching this with great interest. Larry M.

PCIe 3 is fine. A SSD -- better SSS or 3S (Solid State Storage) -- is RAM not a disk. Thus it should be handled like RAM.

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.
