RE: IBM i Now Supports USB Flash Drives



fixed

No USB 3.0? :-(

Lets see, USB 1.1 came out in Sept 1998. So this has been 14 years in the making!

Now that's a huge development cycle!

Holy cow! Brain is spinning....

<snip>
Today, IBM is adding support to use USB Flash Drives as a second type of RMS technology. Flash drives can hold as much data as multiple DVDs and can typically access the data much faster. This allows a much more convenient way to move data (either IFS or save data) to another machine. IBM does not qualify nor recommended any particular device, but typical USB 2.0 devices from 2 to 32GB have been used in our testing.
