Market analysis believes that the Chinese mainland SSD (solid state hard disk) demand growth, or the basis of cooperation between the two. The permeability of SSD has risen to more than 3 in the NB, and the advantages of SSD high speed access also make it more and more widely used in the data center. Chinese, with second of the world's largest PC brand Lenovo, Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent in the hands of a large number of data center to SSD business also should not be underestimated, and therefore decided to get into the purple lite.
