Share prices in Western Digital have soared from $50 to $80 as sources at the company said that it was set to re-enter the SCSI drive market.
That?s not a new proposition for WD. It formerly had a SCSI division but sold it some time ago. Until recently, it specialised in the manufacture of IDE hard drives.
The source said: ?SCSI hard drives are with some manufacturers who have them on evaluation and that has caused their stock to rise significantly.?
James Wickes, MD of UK distributor Ideal Hardware, said he thought it was good for the industry that WD had re-entered the SCSI market.
