Newly formed, the Storage Products’ Association’s mission is to help storage manufacturers and consumers alike understand the pivotal role that storage offerings such as HDD and SSHD technologies play in an effective storage mix for all consumer and business environments.
“The market for storage continues to grow at an explosive rate with estimates now predicting that by 2020 demand will reach 6 zettabytes annually. As the purveyor of the broadest storage portfolio in the industry, Seagate is committed to sharing the benefits of storage technologies and the right storage mix for consumer and enterprise needs. We are pleased to join SPA as we view the association as an excellent forum for educating the public at large,” said Jeff Burke, Seagate Vice-President of Strategic Marketing and Research.
In addition to informing customers, partners, members and users about current storage offerings, SPA will strive to provide balanced and informative information to the marketplace about cutting-edge storage technologies such as shingle magnetic recording and heat-assisted magnetic recording and the role these new technologies may serve in the future.
