Research and Markets: SSD Story: Slow on the Uptake

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/41d668/ssd_story_slow_on) has announced the addition of the "SSD Story: Slow on the Uptake" report to their offering.

With decreasing flash memory prices and the shift to mobile computing, SSDs are finally moving from the data center to the PC as many had predicted over a decade ago. This transition, however, will not happen overnight owing to a number of issues, including drive density limitations, cost per megabyte compared to HDDs, and performance. This report examines the rise of the SSD market and the challenges that remain ahead and which segments of the market will drive growth. Among the key findings are the following:

-The greatest growth will come from the high-performance and price sensitive segments of the market.

-The most cost effective SSD solutions are currently around 16GB, but that will approach 256GB by 2013.

-Enterprise SSDs will experience the highest CAGR of 155% through 2013.

-The SSD market will approach 43 million units by 2013.
