EMC Seeks Edge With Large Flash-Memory Drives - WSJ.com

An interesting milestone

EMC Corp., the market-share leader in big computer storage systems, said it will start selling flash-memory drives -- similar to those in ultra-portable music players -- to replace some of the slower disk drives in its most powerful systems.

The flash drives, to be available later this quarter, let computer programs retrieve information about 30 times faster than the input-output process in a traditional hard-disk drive and use less electricity, EMC said. But they cost about 30 times the price of a disk per megabyte of information stored.
