Another Flash Acquisition by Western Digital

In one of the best acquisitions ever, Western Digital managed to capture SanDisk and with that a ticket back to the future. Although still important, the HD business of Western Digital and their competitors has been declining and increasingly moving into commodity land. The acquisition has had an immediate and visible impact on the financial results of Western Digital and given the company appetite for more acquisitions. Latest Western Digital has entered an agreement to acquire Tegile, a company developing and manufacturing leading edge storage solutions to Data Centers. The Data Center is the single most important market for Western Digital’s flash products accounting for close to 1B$ worth of revenue per quarter.

Western Digital is successfully ascending from the abyss of disruption.
