Toshiba GULF FZE has selected MBUZZ as a distributor of its storage solutions across Saudi Arabia. In addition, MBUZZ will also be the regional distributor for Toshiba’s range of NAS products.
The demand for storage continues to be driven by exponential growth in data generated. Hard drives (HD) continue to address most of this demand - forecasting that 58% of data storage will be on HD with SSDs accounting for 16% of data storage and NAND making up 10% of the storage by 2025.
