Hybrid drive do already exist of course, but the part about putting at-risk data on the flash memory if environmental conditions are bad is new to my ears.

I do have a problem with the whole concept of combining solid state and mechanical drives though, in that the mechanical part will probably fail sooner and get thrown out with perfectly good and expensive flash memory. So I prefer approaches that let the two work together but be indepenently replaceable, such as PC motherboards that have built-in flash that caches all disks.
