For many people, booting up a work computer is part of every morning routine. And often times, your laptop or desktop computer can have a mind of its own; resulting in mind-numbing boredom as you wait for your morning dose of caffeine to kick in or frenzied panic while you eagerly wait to gain access to that important email your boss assumed you received, or login to that online meeting you're running late for.

In storage, HDDs and SSDs have become the equally enduring "Digital Dynamic Duo" similarly exciting us with their amazing abilities individually and their ever greater strength and power when joined together. And enterprises need that power to harness the current and upcoming onslaught of data.

Now, more than ever, the world is data driven. Collectively the human race is generating more data than ever before, and now we are getting a giant boost in data creation from machines. IDC and EMC estimate we'll generate as much as 40 zettabytes of data by 2020* with that data coming from people and things… the internet of things to be e...
