n this talk, I will give an overview of portable storage and explain the history of computing as the history of virtualizations. Then, I will discuss opportunities of new virtualizations that are made possible by the introduction of next-generation non-volatile memory. The prime example is on virtualization that makes a combination of small non-volatile memory and a conventional storage device look like a virtual storage device that inherits the performance characteristics of non-volatile memory with the cost of the conventional storage device. Finally, I will explain the danger of extrapolating the current trends to predict the future and briefly touch new emerging areas that have a potential to create killer applications for next-generation non-volatile memory.
