        Is enterprise object storage ready to lead?
        SearchStorage, July 12th 2017

        "Since it was first conceived in the mid-1990s, object storage has grown to be one of the largest methods of storing data in use today. The development and commercialization of object storage happened nearly in lockstep with the technology industry that is still its primary user by far, the cloud. Recent advances and shifts in data storage technology have IT buyers wondering if enterprise object storage could become as common as cloud object storage..."

          What Is 3D NAND Memory and Storage?
          How-To Geek, July 11th 2017

          "Flash storage (like SSDs) is all the rage for PCs these days. And though the process isn't going as fast as we might hope for, that storage is getting cheaper and denser all the time, creeping up in value towards conventional spinning disk hard drives. The biggest leap forward as of late has been 3D NAND flash, also known as vertical NAND or 'V-NAND.' What does this mean for you? In layman's terms, cheaper and faster storage and memory. In non-layman's terms, well, let's take a look..."
