Who needs it?
Flash disks would certainly be one as it would reduce the need for leveling algorithms.
Could also change system architecture by using flash more for cache/paging as you don't need to worry (as much) about read/write failures.
In terms of write speeds, you could have higher parallelism for writing more bits at a time again because you may now use more like a traditional disk, near volatile memory.
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.
