3 things that could have killed flash SSDs
The emerging size of the flash SSD market as you see it today was by no means inevitable. It owes a lot to 3 competing storage media competitors which failed to evolve fast enough in the Darwinian jungle of the storage market in the past decade.

One of these 3 contenders is definitely on the road to extinction - but could one of the other 2 still emerge to threaten flash SSDs?

The article - SSD's past phantom demons explores the latent market threats which hovered around the flash SSD market in the past decade. They seemed real and solid enough at the time.
SSD past phantom demons image - click to read the article Getting a realistic perspective of flash SSD's past demons (which seemed very threatening at the time) may help you better judge the so-called "new" generation of nv memory contenders - which are also discussed in the article. ...read the article

world's first M.2 MRAM SSD
Editor:- August 13, 2015 - Everspin Technologies and Aupera Technologies today announced the launch of the worlds first all MRAM storage module in the M.2 form factor.

The AupM001 is equipped with Everspins non-volatile, high endurance, 64 Mb DDR3 ST-MRAM devices and a PCIe backhaul interface. AupM001's capacity is 32MB and among other uses is used in Auperas all Flash Array system for parity check and as a hardware accelerated engine for specific applications that require low latency and high performance.

Everspin quadruples MRAM chip R/W
Editor:- February 26, 2013 - Everspin Technologies today announced it will sample the first of a new family of MRAM chips in Q2.

The MR10Q010 (1Mb in a 16 pin SOIC) has a quad SPI serial interface instead of the single line interface offered in earlier MRAM devices.

This makes it more attractive for applications which need the simplicity of no wear-out non volatile memory and fast write performance in low capacity and small footprint applications.
