SSD growth is slowing. You might have noticed fewer models coming out lately. I’m guessing manufacturers underestimated the actual dollar value of the enterprise market. While more people have adopted the new storage format. NAND chip prices have fallen but not to the level where mainstream consumers will have one in their homes. Economic pressures don’t exactly give corporations the spending leeway they used to enjoy. For now good old 3.5″ hard drives are still the way to go.
Nothing like working together to try to make more money. IBM and SandForce are putting their heads together to push their SSD/Server products to companies. It comes with 8 cores and 10.5 TB of SSD storage. It works out to 150,000 transactions per core per minute. That’s a lot of processing power. The question is, can you afford it?
