what's xpoint retention

Let's put it another way, we haven't seen XPoint advertised for its retention. So how could its use for storage even be guaranteed? Can Facebook share what they know of how long XPoint can hold data? If it were longer than flash it would have been mentioned, but I guess maybe it's not. In that case, why not use flash? Facebook is about holding a lot of data that is not written over multiple times. So archive-type storage is what they need.

Probably between DRAM and Flash. But it looked like they were talking only Flash applications. So 3D NAND seems more fitting to consider.

So if facebook should NOT use it in a storage tray in a rack, where should they put it? In some specialized servers? all servers? elsewhere? nowhere?

The emphasis is on high-density storage like cold flash. It doesn't play to XPoint's differences from Flash.

Why do you say XPoint can't handle their data loads?

I think they misunderstood XPoint can't handle their data loads.
