WD Es­tab­lishes New Stor­age As­so­ci­a­tion

Lead­ing stor­age man­u­fac­turer es­tab­lishes Stor­age Prod­ucts As­so­ci­a­tion

HWM (Malaysia) - - TRENDS -

There are many names when it comes to the dig­i­tal stor­age in­dus­try, which may re­sult in very dif­fer­ent per­for­mance from one brand to the other. In light of this, WD has an­nounced that it has founded the Stor­age Prod­ucts As­so­ci­a­tion (SPA) with other hard drive com­pa­nies to help “...pro­mote the mer­its and value of ro­tat­ing stor­age tech­nolo­gies.”

As of print­ing time, SPA mem­bers in­clude HGST, Sea­gate, Toshiba and WD. In ad­di­tion to cre­at­ing aware­ness of ro­tat­ing stor­age tech­nolo­gies, the or­ga­ni­za­tion helps stor­age man­u­fac­tur­ers and users un­der­stand and sup­port cur­rent and fu­ture stor­age needs, in­clud­ing the key role of HDDs and SSHDs (Solid State Hy­brid Drives). To achieve this, the SPA will par­tic­i­pate in in­dus­try and end-user events, and will pub­lish ma­te­ri­als about the stor­age needs of end-users and the ef­fec­tive use of mixed stor­age tech­nolo­gies.

The pur­pose of the SPA is to pro­mote the ad­van­tages of us­ing new stor­age tech­nolo­gies, such as this Ul­tra Slim 2.5” HDD from WD
