As far as access times are concerned we note that the Seagate desktop SSHD performs better than the Laptop SSHD.
If, however, there is a sharp increase in accesses to a particular stored data item, the load on the server storing it will increase, which may greatly cause an upturn in user access times.
Even the earliest of these historic subsystems were capable of access times of less than 10 seconds and capacities of more than 100GB.
Hard-disk drives provide high-capacity (greater than 100 gigabytes) and moderate access times in an affordable package but, like RAM, are neither removable nor archival, even though in recent years the swap-out capability of drives and media has lead to a change in thinking about the removability of hard disk systems.
The new Flash memory device supports 54MHz microprocessors used in advanced cell phones and other emerging portable applications, and allows for random access times of 70 ns and synchronous access times of 13.
The system performs better with an increased number of users, according to the company, because average access times of hard drives are so much better than CD-ROMs.
ACJ offers a variety of managed access solutions for any size business and it works just like those offered by fee-based providers including, secure username and password access, client isolation which prevents a user from snooping files on other laptops, user access support, and user access times.
MRAM has access times as fast or faster than SRAM and as dense as DRAM without any of the power or heat issues.
A few current drives and most of the new ones that will come out this year sport access times of less than 200-ms.
The 32Mbit model reaches clock rates as high as 75MHz with burst access times as fast as 7.
Lastly, it provides random access times on the order of minutes, an unacceptably slow performance for many archival applications.
Traditional disk drives with access times of 10 to 15 milliseconds, are limited to I/O rates of only 50 I/Os per second because their long access time is usually over 90 percent of the total data transfer time.
