Who's who in SSD? - Longsys

by Zsolt Kerekes - editor - - June 16, 2015

In June 2015 a company spokesperson told me that- "Longsys is the biggest buyer of Samsung flash in China, and our revenue is $800 million /year."

But despite their size, and appearance at many past consumer related electronic trade shows - I have to admit that I hadn't heard of Longsys before.

Longsys is a new name for the company.

Prior to 2015 Longsys was known as Netcom.

But the difficulty of trademarking "Netcom" as a brand in some countries (probably due to it consisting of commonly used elements) led to the company making the change. (See also:- naming products, companies and services from a marketing persepctive)

One of Longsys's distinctive products (compared to most other embedded SSD companies) is an NFC micro SD (flash card with built in antenna - used for mobile digital signature and authentication.

Longsys also have a range of what they call "airdisk" storage modules - which enable Android and iOS devices to share data wirelessly with these wi-fi compatible flash modules.

Their SSD products also include a range of M.2 compatible SSDs.

The FORESEE AIR SSD is specifically designed for the Macbook Air and Pro models - see datasheet (pdf) for more details.
