LSI, the company behind the popular SandForce SSD controllers, has been ranked number one in the world for SSD controller revenues. This ranking is based upon data released by Forward Insights and is for revenues from 2012. The data showed that SLI increased its revenue share to 38 percent, or almost double that of the closest competitor.
SSDs continue to take the world by storm, showing up in more and more systems as the default device. Prices continue to drop and demand responds accordingly. The fact that LSI has moved into the number one position goes to show just how popular their SSD controllers are.
Phil Brace, executive vice president, Storage Solutions Group, LSI Corporation:
Our leadership in SSD controllers reflects our comprehensive solutions portfolio and the multiple ways we can engage with customers to help them rapidly gain the benefits of flash for their applications. FSPs with LSI DuraClass technology provide best-in-class endurance, performance and power efficiency and are seeing wide adoption as customers in enterprise, cloud and client computing increasingly turn to flash.
