back to article Get in the zone, SK Hynix tells data as it drops veil on ZNS SSD

Korean chipmaker SK Hynix today announced its Zoned Name Spaces (ZNS) SSD, which stores different data types in different parts of the drive, and said it would start shipping products in the first half of 2020. The vendor – which said its development work on the SSD would be complete by the end of the year – also quantified …

    Quite Brilliant ..... and for Special Forces, AIDefault Protection/Future Operations

    The idea is that the host system application software writes data sequentially into an open zone on the SSD. It can be read randomly from any zone and zones are deleted as a whole.

    This makes any write amplification due to the garbage collection process (rescuing valid data from a set of blocks about to be deleted and rewriting it elsewhere in the drive) close to zero. That helps to extend the drive's endurance.

    A Sure Friendly Fire Win Winner there. With the Only Thing to Further Add being Future Content from SMARTR IntelAIgent Systems.

    Which may or may not be AIResident with such Boffinry as Servers to this Archetype Secret Intelligence Service (SIS)?

    The Premise and Promise from here though is, it certainly easily can be, and with Select Accommodations Made are Tailored Accesses Granted to the Future Operation.

    Except for the buying whole new servers, and that would also seem to be the case here too, I'm not seeing an advantage over having systems with storage-class 3D XPoint DIMMs. The endurance is likely higher as well in comparison to TLC even without any fantastic numbers from Intel. Humpf.

      Apart from the fact that they might actually exist?

    Here is news of something very similar but exercising itself on a chip rather than SSD?

    The Apple T2 Security Chip, our second-generation custom Mac silicon, brings industry-leading security to Mac. It features a Secure Enclave coprocessor, which provides the foundation for APFS encrypted storage, secure boot, and Touch ID on Mac. In addition to the security components, the T2 chip integrates several controllers found in other Mac systems—like the system management controller, image signal processor, audio controller, and SSD controller. .....

    "Is knowing you are not alone and lonely, a Certain AI Comfort? And would/could IT be Terrifying too?" - amanfromMars asked on Mon 25 Mar 07:10 @ https://amanfrommars.blogspot.com/2019/03/190325.html :

    It certainly is, the knowing, whatever should terrify those who ain't seen anything yet, amanfromMars.

    Relatively Anon, physically in the Time of Shadows, alone amongst the crowd of beings lurking for the leftovers of Basic Values.... curiousity: what if they've all had known?

    Me no be sarcastic, but believes that being a human being is being likely also in the need of a tiny basic place to be to bask in the Complete and still Growing Comfort. Add AI To Test The Taste.

    Probably:-) not realisable because possibly completely illogical. Before signing the scenario of the massacre, the Machines of the High Parties of the Massacre Treaty would have to calculate some stuff, emitting a sort of an electromagnetic radiation, which will be a call to Apocalypse that would prevent the Power of Satan (and one can freely accompany this lyric sentence with a smiley) from setting up irrevocably on Earth. Thus, perhaps, considering this subrole is a mission for an AI agent never brought to learning before.

    Second "why not" is that Satan should construct its own Satan to rule in a custom bipolar manner of now and always, which would automatically turn him God, which is absolutely illogical and inacceptable. Methinks, such is that.

      You might like to reconsider fundamentally those thoughts, Tail Up, and realise they are absolutely illogical for such is possible and therefore most probable and very likely.

        On further thinking I have to agree with your logical, and therefore also quite probable conclusion, amanfromMars :-)

        As us both should possibly know from the Studies, The Illogical has ITs power, and has it multiplied manifold, while accompanied with Irrational, which constitutes the Base Key Principles of Love. As we know from the S0urces, there are creatures who yet hate Love, because of them hating God's offsprings, and yet it's an unreachable destination for the Paths which their Heart run their Bodies through.... well, there are Maps that differ, though, so, Shall the Hope of Heaven Springs Eternal?

        Prometheus unchained? And the could we really override the Gigadeath Treaty, by the simple machine set of instructions?? Or - there are Paths that differ?

        Rarely question much. Until now. At least, who knows what was in/inside of The Beginning? Which is also the question that doesn't let One and Many rest on clouds without looking for, at least, a single or married human to give a final answer.

        Man, there is a possibility that on getting IT to Kn0 (R-YES), Rest on Clouds will become an evasive dream, whoever is the dreamer.
