Western Digital plans to acquire sTec to boost its presence in the market for enterprise solid-state drives.
Flash storage vendor STEC is super-sizing the kind of flash storage used in smartphones and portable music players, coming out on Monday with 2TB SSDs in configurations for enterprise equipment vendors.
In a bid to maximize the speed advantage of solid-state storage, more vendors are promoting approaches that move it closer to the CPUs that process stored data.
Flash storage vendor STEC will be able to offer a five-year warranty on the next generation of its Zeus SSDs (solid-state disks) regardless of the technology they use.
