New CAM Storage Is Much Faster Than Any SSD

Before solid-state drives came around, data storage on PCs happened at a relatively slow pace using traditional hard disk drives which utilize a spinning disk between 3,800 RPM (less common) to 7,200 RPM (more common). Although solid state technology is faster and more reliable than hard drives, it’s still nothing compared to the speed of RAM (Random Access Memory).

With this in mind, NEC developed a new Content Addressable Memory (CAM) system that stores data without using any power. The new CAM modules are as fast as RAM modules, making it a top contender for future technology around the globe.

Google Music Offers 50GB Of Free Cloud Services

Google Music will launch tomorrow at Google I/O 2011. Google will offer users a digital locker that will allow songs to be stored within the cloud-based service, much like Amazon’s service. You can do this now with Google Docs but are only allowed to send one song at a time. Android streaming has also been heavily tested due mainly from a leaked Android Music app that started going around later in 2010.

There will be one key difference between Google Music and Amazon’s platform, and that is the Google service will offer ten times more storage. A free Google locker will offer 50GB of storage data that will accommodate 20,000 songs compared to Amazon’s 2,000 (for the free version.)
