Seagate is focusing on SSD, but on HDD is not going to forget
The source told about the plans of Seagate, referring to the words of senior Vice President of the company. As stated, Seagate is concentrating on the promotion on the market of SSDs, acquiring other companies and entering into strategic alliances.
At the same time, the manufacturer is sure that HDD is the future, believing that the drives of both types can be used in modern electronic devices, complementing each other.
On the assessment of the Seagate, in the next five years, the proportion of notebooks equipped with SSD, will increase to 90%. However, in applications where there is demand for large volumes at a lower unit cost HDD storage will remain out of competition. Therefore, Seagate continues to invest with the appropriate direction of research and development.
