When people find out that Toshiba was the fastest growing storage vendor in 2016*, people often ask me how we did it.  There is no single answer to the question, but a lot of the success can be explained by our efforts to focus on people and products.  What do I mean by that?  Let me break it down…

The Fastest Growing HDD and SSD Vendor in 2016Everyone loves a great comeback story. Kurt Warner came out of Arena Football to lead the St. Louis Rams to a Super Bowl victory. Steve Jobs was fired from Apple, then rehired only to lead the company to enormous success. The future of Detroit car companies looked grim until it managed a total turnaround in the late 2000s, restoring the iconic American industry.

But today, I’m thrilled to share that Toshiba was the fastest growing HDD and SSD vendor in 2016!

Toshiba Delivers Cutting-edge Technology to Optimize Enterprise Data Centers – Introducing the PX04 Series of SAS SSDs

Recently Toshiba introduced its next-generation 12Gb SAS SSD for enterprise server and storage applications, the PX04 Series. This new SSD delivers several key features that are sure to benefit even the highest performing and most efficient data centers around.

The PX04 Series is the first 12Gbit/s1 SAS SSD to provide up to 3.84TB of usable capacity2. I can still remember my first 8GB SSD just a few short years ago so it's amazing to think just how far SSD capacity has come. It won't be long before these enterprise SSDs will be overtaking hard disk drives in density.

Another key feature of the PX04 reminds me why I love my car. It has economy and sport settings that allow me to shift between gas-friendly and high-performance modes on the fly. Talkin...
