Thailand Flooding Bringing Hard-Disk Shortage

By November 11, 2011May 24th, 2022No Comments

We wanted to take a moment to notify you of an important development in the technology world that may be of interest to you and your business.

As you may know Thailand is experiencing its worst flooding in half a century. What you may not know is that leading hard-disk manufacturers WesternDigital and Seagate have operations in Thailand that are being impacted by the flooding resulting in a major shortage of hard-drives such as those found in servers, PC’s, and storage devices.

What does this mean to you and your business? If you’re in need of new hard-drives now or anticipate needing them in the near future we would recommend purchasing soon as shortages are already being reported and it’s likely only going to get worse.

You can read more about the issue here.

CommTech has strategic partnerships with many different hard-drive resellers and can work to find solutions as a result of the shortage. Please let us know if we can be of any assistance.
