Magnetic harddrive will stick around for a long time. The server market which requires a huge storage space will always be better off using magnetic harddrive than using SSD. It is just difficult to believe price of SSD will come down to competitive price of regular HD, at least not in the foreseeable future.

Samsung has got a very early retirement from the HDD Market, as it will be surely an era of NAND Flash Storage in the near future, but HDDs will be still there in the market for at-least next 3 years, but still that is a very huge market share. But it is a good news for Seagate and WD that they have got stronger in HDD market.
