NAND Shortage Continues through 2017

NAND Shortage Continues through 2017

Back in August 2016 we posted a Blog regarding the shortage on NAND memory and the impact it was having on SSD supply. In the blog we outlined the major contributors to the shortage and gave an industry perspective on when supply may recover. Today we are posting this update because the more things change the more they stay the same. Simply put, NAND memory continues to be constrained as demand outpaces volume and the shortage is now expected by some to continue through 2017 and may extend ...

NAND Shortage - Will it impact SSD supply and price?

NAND Shortage - Will it impact SSD supply and price?

We’ve heard a lot recently about the rapid changes in NAND technology that have been driving down the cost per gigabyte and increasing the storage capacity of Solid State Drives, but these transitions are having an impact on NAND supply which has led to some shortages of popular size SSDs and some price increases on tier two brands. Typically when people hear mention of the words "shortage" and "NAND" they instinctively think back to the early days of solid state drives...

3D NAND - Putting Another Nail in the Hard Drive Market?

3D NAND - Putting Another Nail in the Hard Drive Market?

SSDs have been making significant gains in market share at the expense of hard disk drives for the past several years. With recent advances in NAND design technology such as 3D NAND, the two key advantages that HDDs have held over SSDs, which were price per gigabyte and storage capacity, are narrowing if not disappearing completely.   Price Per Gigabyte – Lower in 2017 In terms of price, SSDs are about $.25 per gigabyte and HDDs are about $.09 per gigabyte, so the gap in terms of...
