November 20 – Kingston Technology, Solid State Drives (SSD) Louis Kaneshiro, Senior Technology Manager, SSD Product Engineering of Kingston Technology, the world’s largest independent manufacturer of memory products, will be presenting on flash drives and Solid State Drives (SSD). An SSD does much the same job (e.g., saving your data while the system is off, booting your system, etc.) as an HDD (Hard Disk Drive), but instead of a magnetic coating on top of platters, the data is stored on interconnected flash memory chips that retain the data even when there’s no power present. SSDs are much faster than HDDs. A flash drive, thumb drive, jump drive (whatever you want to call it) functions much like a CD/DVD, or old time floppy disk, except it can cram a lot more memory in a small space. It is currently the most convenient, portable, storage device. It is also much faster than CD/DVDs. Mr. Kaneshiro, and maybe his associate, David Leon, will present the technology and functions of SSDs and flash drives. They will cover maintenance of these devices as well. As the world of technology keeps moving along and changing they will have lots to share. Flash drives selling with other brand names are manufactured by Kingston? You may be using a Kingston flash drive now without knowing it. There will be time for questions about solid state technology.
