Wasn't this already said?

Not exactly. You predict simply extinction of tape, I am saying that memory cards will rule. If one will be able to buy 16GB card for $10, the cards will be used for long-term storage just like tapes are used now. HDDs? Just as temporary storage in a rack.

P2 is a RAID array made of standard SD cards. These may be higher-grade cards, but SD cards nevertheless. With capacity of regular SD cards increasing and prices dropping one might expect that P2 prices would drop too. If not, people will switch to consumer memory cards, as simple as that. P2 is just a PCMCIA card. Developing an SD-to-P2 adapter will be an easy task.
