Micron is involved in both NAND and DRAM storage. NAND storage type is primarily used in main memory servers, memory cards, USB flash drives, and solid-state drives for storage or transfer of data. Dynamic random-access memory (D.R.A.M.) is a type of random access memory that stores each bit of data in a separate capacitor within a circuit, in products like mobile phones and tablets, personal computers, and video game consoles. Profitability reaches its peak in the enterprise area of Micron's flash business. Micron is running on a revenue basis somewhere around 80 to 85 percent client, and 15 to 20 percent enterprise. As of right now, there is not enough NAND capacity to store even 20 per cent of the data people are generating, a staggering figure. The advantages of this technology will continue to drive enterprises to transition to flash memory or NAND from traditional disk drive technologies, and Micron will continue to be a key player in this space. The acquisition of Elpida shows the strength of the finance team at Micron Technologies.
