Chris Evans of Architecting IT comments:
A recent article on The Register reminded me that we’ve started to see hard drive vendors introducing warranty limits on their hard drives for the amount of data that can be written to them in any one year. Solid state drives have always had this restriction, because we know that flash is damaged by being written to, but does the same now apply to HDDs?

Nice article from Chris about the practical limits of rotational media. We may be seeing the beginning of the end.
