SSD in 1992
Jul 3, 2012

One funny thing about SSDs is that lots of people think that they are something new.

But the first time I ever heard the name "SSD" was in 1992.

At work, in 1992, one day the chief technical IT guy was showing us a new utility program they had just installed on the mainframe. He mentioned that day that they were installing "a SSD" on the system. I asked him what a SSD was, and he told me then. "Kind of like memory, but also like disk storage", is what he said.

Of course, then, 1992, it was probably a $100,000 expense for the company. Maybe more, maybe less, but that sort of number.
