Global Q2 2011 storage software revenues total $3.4Bn, growing by 11.3% Y-o-Y-- the 7th consecutive quarter of Y-o-Y growth according to IDC. 

The analyst says this growth is due to expensive investments within the infrastructure space during Q2. 

Storage Infrastructured Software and Storage & Device Mangagment Software see the biggest growth, with 22.6% and 17.3% Y-o-Y growth respectively.

Flash Memory Gets Ever Smaller

SanDisk and Toshiba's developments in NAND flash memory get even smaller-- producing a 64Gb X2-based monolithic chip with 19nm technology.

The 19nm 64Gb X2 device will see sampling this quarter, before high-volume production following Q2 2011. At that time Sandisk will also start producing X3 products with the 19nm technology.

The process is the company's most advanced yet, and should allow for smaller high capacity removable and embedded storage devices for use in all sorts of mobile devices, from tablets to mobile phones.
