NAND technology is a type of memory or storage system that does not require power to retain data as opposed to random access memory, wherein all data is lost upon computer shutdown. For years, Micron and Intel companies have performed as joint forces in development and promotion of non-volatile flash memory technology. It may come as a shock for many California readers to learn the two entities have announced their planned business dissolution.
The long-term partnership that is currently heading for business dissolutioncarries numerous implications for the world of technology. As it stands, most smart phones, tablets, personal computers and other devices heavily rely on NAND technology for data storage needs. Micron and Intel say they will finish working on 3D NAND technology slated for release in 2019.
Once the project is complete, the two businesses will part ways. In joint ventures of this nature, each entity typically provides specific strengths and specialized efforts to the centrally focused project. This means when two forces separate, each will likely have to compensate for the loss of the other.
Not many business owners would dissolve a successful, long-standing partnership without careful consideration. Profitability may be at risk. It is also conceivable that there may be additional expenses incurred in trying to fill in the gaps created by the absence of a former business alliance. This is why experienced business owners in California and beyond usually consult with experienced business and commercial law attorneys before taking any definitive action to separate from a long-term partner.
