A*STAR redeploys Data Storage Institute’s renowned capabilities in alignment with national research and innovation strategies

Due to rapid technological advances and the wave of digitalisation, the data storage industry has evolved and been transformed. The hard disk drive (HDD) industry in Singapore has been impacted by these global trends. Considerable consolidation has taken place and much of the production now happens outside of Singapore.

Given these dramatic industry shifts, A*STAR has decided to redeploy its highly celebrated talent and resources at the Data Storage Institute (DSI) to other A*STAR research units to deepen and complement relevant capabilities in those units in order to deliver greater impact in line with national priorities.

While DSI will no longer function as an independent research unit in A*STAR, its expertise in non-volatile memory, disk drive design and systems, and data centre network technologies, will continue to contribute significantly to A*STAR’s key priorities such as Future of Manufacturing, Artificial Intelligence, Industrial Internet-of-Things and Cybersecurity.
