The solid-state array sector

Solid-state storage (SSS) is a type of computer storage media made from silicon microchips. SSS stores data electronically instead of magnetically, as spinning hard disk drives (HDDs) or magnetic oxide tape do.

In 2016, the overall solid-state array (SSA) market grew by 72%, with total revenue of $4.6 billion. The purchase price of SSAs continues to drop by at least 40% in the last 18 months. 

Gartner research stated last year, “Within the next 12 months, solid-state arrays will improve in performance by a factor of 10, and double in density and cost-effectiveness, therefore changing the dynamics of the storage market. By 2021, 50% of data centers will use SSAs for high-performance computing and big data workloads, up from less than 10% today.
