At LOPSA-East 2013, I was lucky enough to present a half-day tutorial on Solid State hard drives that got a lot of positive feedback. The talk was recorded, but wasn’t available until now!
I’ve uploaded it to YouTube, and I’m embedding it below:
Note that it is three hours long. If you already know about spinning disks and you’re comfortable with that technology, skip to 56 minutes in for the beginning of the SSD discussion.
Also, I’ve uploaded the slideshow to slideshare (along with several other presentation slide decks I’ve done).
I hope you enjoy it and get something out of it. If you have any questions, feel free to ask here or on twitter.
