Seems WD's Seen the Writing on the Wall for Spinning-Disk Technology.
Seems WD's seen the writing on the wall when it comes to spinning-disk technology. Like Seagate, WD is certainly no testament to the reliability of hard disk technology (a technology which I point out is now problematic in a post to today's earlier Seagate story Shingle me timbers! Seagate brags of 1m SMR drives - where are they?.
However, unlike Seagate who is seemingly flogging a dead horse by persisting in pushing the density envelope higher and higher on spinning-platter technology, perhaps WD is doing something positive about the problems by pushing its dollars into more reliable storage technologies.
We'll see. I await with interest.
