SSD Shipments Leap 66% in Q3, Revenue Doubles

Wednesday Dec 14th 2011 by Staff

Enterprise data centers spent twice as much on solid state drives this quarter as they did during the same quarter last year.

Computerworld: According to IDC, manufacturers shipped 66 percent more solid state drives (SSDs) during the third quarter than during the same quarter last year. Revenue climbed from $673 million to $1.29 billion. While SSD sales to the industrial equipment market actually fell, enterprise data center sales more than doubled, from $247.8 million to $522 million. PC market sales also increased dramatically from $354 million to $716 million.

Those sales increases are particularly impressive because 2010 was also a very good year for SSD manufacturers.
