Basics of solid-state drives (SSD) including security concerns
Like many of the people who read this and other IT-oriented blogs, I've been keeping an eye on solid-state drive (SSD) technology for some time. It seems likely to eventually do to hard-disk storage what digital cameras did to film, but how well do you understand SSD today? What about security concerns such as encryption and drive-wiping? I ran across this blog post on Tech Republic which does an excellent job of introducing you to the basics of SSD storage and includes a good introduction to the security concerns associated with SSD. I hope it's helpful.
