Since disk still costs more than an order of magnitude less than flash, and this gap is not closing, the headline makes no sense. Flash makes sense for high performance, but disk makes sense for less frequently accessed data, just as tape libraries still make sense for archiving.
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.
