Market Adoption Rate For Encrypted SSDs May Increase 50% - 2018

Kanguru DefenderSSD300 FIPS 140-2 Certified, hardware encrypted Solid State DriveMILLIS, MA USA, June 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Solid State Drives, despite their benefits, have often been overlooked for more cost-effective hard drives due to their hefty price, but that may be changing.

Although price has often been a factor preventing many cost-conscious organizations from adopting SSDs over hard drives to store data, DRAMeXchange reports that prices for solid state drives may fall due to manufacture oversupply, resulting in a significant drop in costs. This could open the market for much wider adoption.

The Benefits of Solid State Drives Over Hard Drives

Although Solid State Technology has typically been more expensive than traditional spinning platter hard drives, the benefits of solid state drives give them a stronger appeal.  The first is lifespan.  Solid State technology is just that – a “solid state”, meaning that there are no moving parts or spinning disks that could be scratched, misaligned or damaged. SSDs use electric currents instead of spinning disks to store and process data, so there is little wear-and-tear on the drive, making SSDs a perfect choice for a longer lifespan.

The second benefit is speed.  Typical hard drives require a “spin-up” of the disk, making for slower read/write speeds, whereas solid state drives could be as much as 10x faster than ordinary hard drives.
