Re: Marketing malarky (Violin and Fusion separation lessening
With all due respect Chris, this is just more malarky. No matter what layers of sw crap you put between the CPU and NAND Flash, NAND FLASH IS FUNDAMENTALLY A BLOCK DEVICE.
That means, regardless of where these snake-oil salesmen try to hide it, there will always be a Block-level IO subsystem hiding in there, somewhere.
Check with any computer engineer on this. CPU cannot use Flash like DRAM or SRAM, ever. Period. End of story.
