Is SSD Density About To Hit a Wall?

Zombie Puggle writes “Enterprise Storage Forum has an article contending that solid state disks will stay stuck at 20-25nm unless the materials and techniques used to design Flash drives changes, and soon. ‘Anything smaller and the data protection and data corruption issues become so great that either the performance is abysmal, the data retention period doesn’t meet JEDEC standards, or the cost increases. Though engineers are working on performance and density improvements via new technologies (they’re also trying to drive costs down), these are fairly new techniques and are not likely to make it into devices for a while.”
