Sierra Logic ships one million SATA ports.

Sierra Logic, a supplier of intelligent silicon storage solutions, announced that it shipped its one millionth SATA port this month. This milestone was reached in less than 4 years of operations, during which three storage solutions have been developed and are in full production.

"I attribute this fast growth to several factors," says Bob Whitson, President and CEO of Sierra Logic. "First, our hardware and systems engineering teams have surpassed our goals in terms of how quickly they have brought enterprise-quality products to market. Second, our broad market share has allowed us to capture the majority of the design slots out there, and third, the overall storage market has clearly sent the message that SATA drives are the defacto standard for cost-effective storage."

"This kind of growth is one of many indicators that SATA storage is now generally accepted as mainstream, both for nearline and, increasingly, for some primary storage applications," said Tom Curlin, Managing Director, RBC Capital Markets. "Credit goes to Sierra Logic for not only identifying this trend years back, but also for their sound execution of a commensurate strategy."
