Memory Prices Continue to Rise

Posted by Vista IT Group on Oct 18, 2017 3:58:58 PM

Rising global economic activity, the exponential growth in data, coupled with increasing server density, has created an industry wide shortage in memory and SSDs.  For months, memory manufacturers have lagged behind on market demand, resulting in increasing lead times and price hikes across all OEMs. Throughout 2017, many leading manufacturers including Cisco, Dell, HPE, and Lenovo have announced price increases multiple times.  Across the board, manufacturer’s suggested retail prices (MSRP) for memory have nearly doubled. Moving into 2018, industry analysts expect further memory price increases as projections for demand doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.
