    Phoronix: NVMe HDD Demoed At Open Compute Project Summit

    Seagate engineers yesterday used the Open Compute Project Global Summit for the first public demonstration of a native NVMe hard drive. The hope is moving forward both HDDs and SSDs in the data center will consolidate to using the NVMe interface...

    They can get by with an x1 link, right? Moving everything to PCIe makes sense to me.

      You could probably put 3 or 4 drives on that without noticing any slowdown.

          Or, alternatively, they could make chunky, more parallel HDDs.

                One thing is for sure. SATA is way past it's shelf life. I can't believe we are still at the point where they are just starting to roll it out to the data centers. It will be at least another decade before it trickles down to consumers.
