Woz: Tech sector is on the verge of a revolution in computer storage architecture

“Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak says that the tech sector is on the verge of a revolution driven by low-power, high-performance disk storage,” James Rogers reports for TheStreet.com.

“Wozniak, who nabbed the role of chief scientist at storage startup Fusion-io earlier this year, touted the company’s Solid State Disk (SSD) technology at an event at the New York Stock Exchange on Thursday,” Rogers reports. “‘I think that we’re on the verge of a revolution in computer storage architecture,’ explained the technology guru and reality TV star. ‘We have the fastest SSD-based on NAND Flash in the world.'”

“Fusion-io, based in Salt Lake City, recently received a strategic investment from Samsung and claims to have developed a better alternative to hard disk drives that also takes up less space,” Rogers reports. “‘Fusion-io attracts me because they do more with less and that is the key tenet of my own engineering life,’ added Wozniak, who helped drive the home computer revolution during his time at Apple. ‘When things are clean and simple, it’s easier to understand — the best hardware and software products seem to have that simplicity.'”

  1. Woz seems like a great guy (who can’t dance for shit). However, saying that “the tech sector is on the verge of a revolution driven by low-power, high-performance disk storage” seems like a bit of a stretch, even for a geek.

    The original Mac was a revolution
    The iPod was a revolution
    Mac OS X was a revolution
    The iPhone was a revolution

    Low-power, high performance disk storage–not so much
