Micron has really jumped into the SSD business, which makes sense given that they have been creating flash-based storage for quite a while now. They do not feel that simply producing flash memory is enough however and have branched into storage controllers to not only make their SSDs faster but also to bring new functionality to them. The Register recently witnessed a company presentation that discussed their plans for the near future as well as enlightening customers about existing products they may not be familiar with such as their PCIe SSD cards. On the client side (read consumer) they will soon be releasing C400 series SSDs using 29nm to 20nm process moving onto a sub-20nm process soon after that. On the Enterprise side you will see the P400m SATA and P410m SAS arrive, both likely using a 25nm process. Check out the full release and see what else Micron has in store for the competition.
"The semiconductor-maker has flash foundries and delivers both solid state drives (SSDs) and PCIe-connected flash cards – the single level cell P320h for example, which is used by EMC in its VFCache product. A hot-swap version of the P320h has been adopted by Dell for server use."
