SiliconSystems will become a business unit of Western Digital manufacturing drives along side the caviar line. Western DIgital bought SiliconSystems for 65 million dollars. An insert below describes why the company was a good buy for Western Digital.

“SiliconSystems has developed LifeEST and SiSMART to measure and calculate how long an SSD will last. LifeEST is the industry’s first endurance calculation methodology that’s independent of how an SSD is used. SiSMART is patented technology that actively monitors SSD performance and measures usage in real time. They work together to determine an SSD’s useable life.”

This purchase instantly put Western Digital into the SSD Race, and possibly ahead.
