The Flash Memory and Hard Drive Hybrid

If you’ve heard about a hybrid car then a version of that for hard drives will be available to the market as well. Flash Memory will be used to help power a hard drive. They call this the Hybrid Hard Drive or HHD.

“The HHD is the convergence of a flash memory chip and a conventional platter-type magnetic disk drive. To save the time and energy spent spinning a metal disk drive it is designed to use static flash memory when starting a PC.” (The Korea Times)

Pretty much like a car right? It’s all about saving energy.
