Paper Title: Why QLC SSDs Are Ready for the Mainstream

Paper Abstract: QLC SSDs are presumed to be slow and low endurance and as a result not a good fit for mainstream usage. In reality, there are a broad range of usage scenarios where QLC SSDs are the preferred option for better eco-friendliness, scalability, cost efficiency, and higher drive density. This presentation is intended to explain what QLC is and compare QLC SSDs with alternatives available in the market to help the audiences understand how to choose among various storage solutions.
