SSD could eventually take over the market, but I don't see that happening in the near future. The cost per terabyte would have to get close to parity and HDD has many more oppotunities to grow their capacity.
What do they say about 'Moore' solid state drive capacity and what do they say about price ? 5 years I think HDD will be in the same place as floppy disks.. Museum - with the 8 inch hard disk - collectors item.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
