About a month ago I wrote my yearly set of storage industry predictions, and one of them was continued SSD market consolidation.

Recently, I saw an interesting article in The Register about the oldest SSD company that I am aware of being for sale. Yes, Texas Memory is for sale.

The SSD market must consolidate, given the number of players and the cost of marketing and sales. Although total sales of SSDs are going up, most of the products being sold are the commodity versions -- - not the enterprise versions. The development cost of enterprise SSDs is much higher than their commodity counterparts.
