The hard drive industry Alliance simultaneously Flash hybrid hard drive technology
Several reports on all dry and hard drive. World’s top five hard drive equipment manufacturer one of the four companies are jointly promoting the development of hybrid hard drive, and the formation of Industrial Union, efforts to promote the embedded larger-capacity Flash chips for traditional hybrid hard drive products.
New hybrid hard drive industry alliances include Seagate (Seagate), Hitachi (HitachiGST), Toshiba (TOSHIBA) and Samsung (SAMSUNG), and only the second in the world’s hard disk storage of WD (westerndigital) isn’t in, it only ranked fifth among several companies company does not have its own disk technology, instead of using third supplier, such as ShowaDenko provide disk components.
The industry Alliance will first focus points to the traditional notebook hard drive market, and provides higher performance and lower power consumption, most hybrid solid state storage hard drive is expected to be on display at the CES2007, capacity is expected to contain the 128MB~1GB different version.
As Chairman of the new Union of Seagate Marketing Manager Joni Clark, hybrid hard drive technology will bring more technology to our industry position, and will ensure the stability of costs on the basis of work for laptop users with longer battery world love you faster response times and higher system reliability.
Course as industry Union one of Samsung and Toshiba for mixed hard drive technology should is most interested in of, under market research institutions iSuppli of analysis report pointed out that, two home company merged up of NAND chip capacity supply about occupy global market share of 70% above, and fast development, while keep quite stability of notebook hard drive growth market also will will for two home company entered mixed hard drive market brings more stability income, under IDC analysis pointed out that, is expected to 2010, Hybrid hard drives during the entire notebook hard drive market share is about to reach 35%.
Microsoft has not yet officially released, recent system can support NAND Flash memory to speed up startup technology windowsvista will also Flash solid state drives and hybrid hard drive product development to strength helped, while solid state drives can also support Microsoft readyDrive technology, which will provide a relatively traditional hard drives faster startup speed, and longer battery life.
