Flash-card shuffler SanDisk might shimmy up the storage stack

Own-brand flash array could be on the cards

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Blocks and Files Tech news blog Silicon Valley Confidential has reported on rumours that SanDisk, the maker of flash camera cards, Lightning brand PCIe flash cards and SSDs, is moving up the stack.

Let's step back for a moment and see if this adds up:

These four steps happen one after the other... So where is SanDisk going with this? What is step number 5?

We thought it was SanDisk tech in Whiptail arrays. Now we hear along the silicon grapevine that, whisper it quietly, SanDisk is going into the flash array business itself and step 5 will happen later this year. We asked SanDisk about this but didn't expect to hear anything to confirm it.

And it met our expectations: "SanDisk does not comment on rumour or speculation so we cannot comment on this."

So there you have it: but whether or not a SanDisk array is coming, the signs look pretty promising. ®
