Tablet demand reduces DRAM bit volume growth

IC Insights’ recently released 2015 edition of 'The McClean Report' shows that DRAM bit volume grew by an average of 67% per year from 1995-2005. In the 10 years since then, however, bit volume growth has averaged 43% per year (see figure below). A worldwide economy mired in recession reduced bit volume growth to an all-time low of 21% in 2009, a big contrast to the 1990s when annual DRAM bit volume growth remained above 70%.

How Flash is transforming the data centre one tier at a time

How Flash is transforming the data centre one tier at a time
Flash is quickly becoming an integral part of daily operations at large data centres. As customers seek to address the 'mismatch' between increasing processor speeds and storage based on mechanically-driven HDDs, they are turning to flash, valuing the speed and performance associated with it. By Chris Gale, European Marketing Director, SanDisk.
