The SPA targets storage vendors, ISVs, solution providers and users, providing a forum to educate and advocate about the role of hard disk drives (HDDs) and Solid State Hybrid Drives (SSHDs) in consumer and business environments.
The SPA will fill a gap in education, research and out-reach concerning storage, focusing on education and advocacy for HDDs and SSHDs, examining the benefits and providing thought leadership on storage components and technologies for all users from client to cloud. Until this point, there has not been a storage association dedicated to helping and educating storage users about storage options and advancements.
"With newly created data doubling every two years, hard disk drives and solid state hybrid drives remain the best option for securely storing large amounts of dynamic data, in a cost effective manner," said
The SPA debuted this week at the Flash Memory Summit where participants from member companies participated in a panel titled, "Solid State Hybrid Drives Help Meet Today's Storage Demands" to discuss the role of hard disk drives and solid state hybrid drives.
