The client and enterprise storage ecosystem NAND / SSD



In our data-driven age, there are lots of excitements in storage ecosystem in terms of adoption, innovation and business opportunities, to name a few.

TRENDFOCUS has released its latest NAND/SSD Quarterly update. One can observe that, in this report, covering CQ2 ’16 results and the revised long-term forecast, all segments, both client and enterprise, saw another quarter where SSDs posted solid growth. 

According to its findings, in the enterprise SSD market, all interfaces expanded, reaching 4.068 million units for the quarter, an increase of 10% Q-Q. Each interface is finding success in differing market segments.

For SATA SSDs, hyperscale and cloud customers continue to take high volumes of the interface, helping to drive CQ2 shipments of 3.2 million units, or 80% of all enterprise SSDs. SAS SSDs showed some growth, 5.4% Q-Q, while exabytes shipped for SAS SSDs jumped drastically. PCIe SSDs topped the 200,000 unit mark, with multiple form factors seeing growth, including M.2 and U.2. 

When it comes to the client market, unit shipments totaled nearly 30 million units. The firm reveals that, increases were seen in all form factors and all market segments. Client PCIe SSDs are now gaining traction outside of Apple, and can become a major part of the client storage ecosystem into 2017. 

Consumption in phones also increased, topping 31% of the total NAND consumed.

4D Geographic Information System (GIS) data

It is interesting to observe that, vendors are focusing on the development of 4D GIS software. 4D GIS data includes 2D data, 3Ddata, and data regarding time change. An integrated database with real-time monitoring is required to generate 4D data. 
4DMapper is an Australia-based company that puts multi-source and multi-format geospatial data, including 3D and 4D GIS, on the cloud and streams it to browsers after rasterization and vectoring.
