There are more and more storage devices based on flash memory technology appearing every day. Following the trend, Mistral Solutions Pvt. Ltd. has released a flash disk card. It can be used as a replacement for convenient hard disks. The company itself positions it for extreme environments where standard disks are too unreliable. The flash disk card can support JBOD and RAID via software. The card comes in size of 8/16/24/32/64 GBytes.
Cards like these and flash based hard disks are great solutions, unfortunately too expensive for end users these days. Still, as Windows Vista promotes the concept of flash based storage in PCs, it is expected that prices of flash drives will go down and they would be more affordable to be deployed in computers and servers.
