Intel looks to shed legacy businesses by selling NAND flash-memory business to SK Hynix 2020/10/21 13:57:49 Business Insider
Summary List Placement Intel agreed to sell its NAND flash-memory business to market rival SK Hynix for $9 billion, according to The Wall Street Journal. The sale would include the transfer of Intel's solid-state drive (SSD) business, NAND architectures, and production facilities in China. However, Intel arranged the deal such that it would still be able to use the China production facility until 2025, at which point ownership would turn over to SK Hynix. The companies hope to gain regulatory approval for the sale by late 2021. Here's what SK Hynix and Intel stand to gain from the transaction: SK Hynix will gain the scale needed to compete against Samsung in the memory business. Samsung shipped 31.1% of global NAND flash capacity in Q2 2020, giving it a significant lead over runner-up Western Digital Corporation's 18.6% share, according to TrendFocus data cited by Tom's Hardware. Intel (13.6%) and SK Hynix (10.1%) were the third- and fourth-highest producers of global NAND flash capacity in Q2 2020, and if the merger were to happen immediately, they would leapfrog Western Digital Corporation.

Western Digital's G-Technology brand today announced the release of a new ArmorLock encrypted NVMe SSD, which is a 2TB SSD that uses G-Tech's newly introduced ArmorLock Security Platform. ArmorLock is a data encryption platform designed with finance, government, healthcare, media, IT, and legal professions in mind, offering greater security than is available with standard SSDs. G-Technology's ArmorLock SSD relies on a smartphone or computer for locking and unlocking through the ArmorLock mobile and desktop apps . It remains locked until it is paired to an iPhone or a Mac and unlocked with the device's security mechanisms - Face ID, Touch ID , or a passcode. G-Technology suggests that this system is ideal for SSDs that need to be shipped between different physical locations as it provides protection until the SSD is in the hands of the right person. Because this higher security technology is meant for professionals, the SSD is more expensive than a standard SSD, priced at $599 for 2TB of storage.
