Seagate gets jelly over SSD business, teams up with DensBit to offer SSDs

Seagate to get more serious about SSDs, team up with DensBits

| Storage News | Posted: Jun 26, 2012 5:19 am

Seagate haven't really bothered with the rocketing solid-state drive (SSD) business, but it looks as though those thoughts are about to change. Seagate have just struck a deal with Seagate controller maker DensBit.

Seagate wants its new friend DensBit to help them build "low-cost, high-performance" consumer SSDs. Consumers are destined to get slower, but denser 3-bits-per-cell memory made on a 20nm-or-loss process, while business-class drives will reach 2-bits-per-cell flash.

 

There's no ETA on these SSDs, but we should expect them in the not too distant future and we should also see Seagate pour considerable resources, time and sweat into SSDs over the coming years.
