SSD vs HDD: The computer world is being completely flooded with fast SSDs at a super appealing price. Incidentally, we are entering a phase where even Microsoft and Sony are planning to equip their next generation consoles with a super fast SSD, leaving the old HDD (traditional hard drive) in the drawer.
- Can we fill an SSD and maintain the same level of performance?
There is still a lot of development in the area of HDD! Because?
SSDs can be much better than HDDs when we talk about information access speed, read / write speed and even I / Os per second. However, HDDs still have a big advantage over SSDs… The cost per Gigabyte!
All the development that is still being done on HDDs is involved with increasing the amount of data that can be stored in a given area. That is, without these advances, SSDs would get HDDs at cost per GB much faster… Which of course would throw the old technology into the dustbin.
SSD vs HDD: Still, while HDDs still have the price advantage, the market looks stagnant!
The most interesting technologies in the world of HDD, such as helium drives or SSHD, are stuck in too high market segments. By the way, a 2TB "normal" HDD has only dropped by 40% in the last 5 years, while SSDs have dropped by almost 75%. Which is probably related to the fact that the 2TB disk is the most popular on the market.
So as long as there is demand, there is no need to lower the price! Of this, in the next ~ 5 years, when SSDs start to reach this amount of space, at a nice price … HDDs are likely to disappear completely from the normal consumer market. Just in the corporate market, where big capacities prevail, and margins are much higher.
