Hardware, Embedded Systems "The magnetic hard disk's tenure as a critical part of the storage technology mosaic is entering its sixth decade, and it shows no sign of ending any time soon. However, certain limitations imposed by rotating media have been coming to the fore lately, and SSDs, which can in theory resolve all these problems, have long been hailed as the eventual successor technology for mass storage. If UK-based startup Dataslide has its way, though, magnetic recording media will get at least one last hurrah, in the form of a new technology called Hard Rectangular Drive."

Why Failure?

Not sure why you think this would be a failure. We know that there are still issues with SSD. According to the specs this drive is faster then SSD, and doesn't have the problems of SSDs. Sounds pretty innovative to me. If the cost is down, I'd buy a few.

Sorry, I was just having fun. It might be a good technology, but my gut (as with the first comment) says no. But my gut is often wrong!
