Client Computing Applications
Whether editing a video clip for social media, writing a book report for school, or generating 3D renderings for a feature film, client applications are pervasive in our personal and professional lives. This vast market segment requires a solution base that casts a net as wide as it does. Today’s client computing devices and systems are purpose-built to meet the specific needs of everyone from the virtual student to the influencer to the remote worker, and to the power user. The flash memory and SSD solutions designed for them should help deliver the effective battery life, immersive gameplay, or the split-second responsiveness that enrich their lives.
The Evolution of Client Computing
From yesterday’s digitization of data to today’s work-from-anywhere world, client computing solutions have played a central role in advancing the way humans do daily life. Years ago, a single computer was shared by an entire household or student base, but today, the “personal computer” lives up to its true name. It used to be the closest flash memory came to client computing was in a USB thumb drive, but today, flash-based SSDs are ubiquitous in even mainstream PCs. What’s more, leveraging the Cloud changed the way we thought about storage and led to a reimagining of the technology most personal to us: the tablet on the kitchen counter, the Chromebook in our backpack or the PC on our desk. Mobility of business, work and entertainment via SaaS, cloud and streaming applications has unlocked potential that was once unimaginable. With explosive data growth and mass storage in the Cloud, the personal computing solutions of the future should focus on being fast, mobile and reliable. Tomorrow’s flash memory and SSD storage solutions should keep pace.
KIOXIA’s Vision of Client Computing
Everyday people don’t see the servers that deliver the music they stream or the data center that operates their SaaS-optimized workflow—it’s client computing solutions that are front and center in their day-to-day life. Client computing enables a single source to handle everything from collaboration at work to escape from work. KIOXIA wants to infuse personal computers with progressive memory and storage technology, unlocking new potential and freedom to create. Our obsession with innovation and quality is key to challenging impossible, enriching client computing devices and delivering real value to end users. As the world continues to drive digital transformation, the opportunities before us are inspiring and unlimited.
