Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Fall out in the memory market will create more casualties amongst manufacturers with Samsung set to reap the results as other players fall out of the market. According to a customer source close to the major conglomerate, the continuing battle between Hyundai and LG Semicon, is set to benefit Samsung, as memory manufacturers consolidate. Samsung, the source said, is keeping a low profile with the South Korean government and complying with President Kim's wishes in every way. Hyundai and LG, two of the biggest chaebols (family groupings) in South Korea, are at loggerheads over a proposed merged company. The source said: "The president of South Korea can't solve this situation." He said that the fall out of various players in the DRAM market during the course of this year had meant that Samsung's business was doing better than ever. The impasse between Hyundai and LG, in the local South Korean market, meant Samsung was bound to benefit in the long term. "It has better process and design technology than the other two," he said. "It is just waiting for other players to fall out." ®
