Flash Storage Taking Off

Progress in the storage segment has probably been more noticeable than in other market segments recently, except perhaps graphics. Faster processors are mainly noticeable if you have the applications able to take advantage of them, and advances on the platform side have been slight as well. But accelerated hard drives and storage products make a noticeable difference. Client PCs, such as desktops and notebooks, boot their operating systems and applications faster thanks to increased throughput, and servers can process more I/O operations per second with faster storage as well.
