I expect that the data centers will drive the flash reliabillity and help the product to be better for everyone.  It is a new technology, so it will take some time and effort to get to the reliability needed.

Flash corruption and read endurance are two issues that often get raised in our applications.  The latest micros have better error detection and correction.  We still see these types of failures with off-the-shelf SD Cards.  SLC cards are much better but are often ten times too expensive.  MLC/TLC cards are more cost effective but need to be managed carefully.

I think the ALibaba team has a open invitation and also challenge to all the flash developers to actually come out with the best products that could meet all five definite requirements.

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.
