Slide 5: "By increasing flash use in the last two years, Facebook has lowered both latency and the number of databases it needs to support."


I can see improvement of latency. I am not sure I understand how flash can help reduce the number of databases. Any insights?

Would you make or use the kind of cold stoage chips Facebook wants?

Any insights you see from Facebook's latest look into its data center?
