wow, that was useless. some analyst predicts that people will use more space, therefore that the storage industry will provide it. ee times should be adding at least a little value to the PR from these firms: how will the higher density be achieved? are there any drawbacks (like lower BER especially when scaled by very large disks)?

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.
