Micron: Laptops shifting demand towards SSDs

Posted on Thursday, March 24 2011 @ 21:11:41 CET by

Micron CEO Steve Appleton notes he's seeing significant demand towards solid state disks from the notebook market:
The demand towards solid-state drives (SSDs) continues to increase as the devices become more affordable and consumers realize what benefits do they bring. At present notebooks are driving the demand towards SSDs, but enterprise customers as well as desktops will also pick up eventually, according to chief executive officer of Micron Technology, a leading maker of NAND flash memory.

"Our SSD shipments were up significantly Q2 over Q1, and we see that trend continuing with the Q3, it is going to be [higher than in the third quarter]. [...] The notebook segment is still driving that growth. [Still], enterprise is starting to play off pretty nicely, as I said, because of the technology development around intelligent controllers and firmware development around making these things more reliable from an enterprise requirement standpoint. [...] The combination of some OEM desktop pre-configured machines as well as some aftermarkets that have combined for some pretty impressive growth," explained Steve Appleton, chief executive officer of Micron, during this week's conference call with financial analysts.
