It was only a matter of time before Western Digital dipped their manicured toes into the SSD pool. And today WD announced their cash buyout of SiliconSystems out of Aliso Veijo, CA. The $65 million cash acquisition has been around since 2002 and has a full range of storage solutions, but going forward they’ll be known as the WD Solid-State Storage business unit. It’s about time WD got into the SSD market and that’s all I have to say.
