In 2011, the price per gigabyte was about $1.56. The increasing use of flash storage in enterprise solutions; the explosive growth of mobile client devices; and lower pricing will help propel the popularity of the technology in the coming years, according to IDC. In the short term, the popularity of SSDs will also get a boost from a shortage of traditional hard drives, as result of the floods in Thailand."
