Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"SanDisk, Nikon and Sony announced that they're jointly developing a new CompactFlash card specification for the professional photography and video markets that would increase throughput from 167MB/sec. to 500MB/sec.

"The new specification would also offer a theoretical maximum capacity of 2TB, which would be conducive to recording high-definition video.

"Current CompactFlash memory cards typically have 4GB to 16GB of capacity, but the CompactFlash 6.0 specification, which was released earlier this month, allows for a maximum capacity of 128GB. The new specification proposed by SanDisk, Nikon and Sony would be a step beyond CompactFlash 6.0."
