How to Find an Industrial Storage Supplier

Industrial storage suppliers are not all the same. While embedded memory is the norm for most of today’s technology, devices that require industrial memory have unique needs. As a result, they also require specialized storage providers. Even within the realm of companies that specialize in industrial embedded memory, suppliers are not interchangeable. For designers and OEMs, finding the right industrial storage supplier is a key part of creating efficient, reliable applications. If you’re looking for industrial embedded memory, consider these factors when picking your industrial storage supplier.


How large is their selection of products?

There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to industrial storage suppliers. Likewise, there isn’t a single embedded memory solution that works for all devices. For this reason, it’s important to choose an industrial storage company that offers a wide variety of industrial memory solutions. The design of a device and how it will be used in the field have enormous impacts on the kind of industrial storage that is the best fit. Look for an industrial storage provider that offers industrial SD cards, CFast cards, SSDs, and more. That way, you’ll have the option to test different models and even pivot to new forms of industrial memory after a redesign.


Does the industrial storage supplier offer customized testing and support?

The support services provided by your industrial storage supplier are an important consideration. Customized testing, in particular, is a key service. If your industrial memory isn’t working as you expect it to or is suffering a high rate of failure, then you need to have a supplier who can help you find a solution.


Many industrial storage suppliers simply fulfill product orders without getting to know their customers’ products. Look for a supplier who can provide customized testing of embedded memory in your device, so they can help you make sure you’re picking the most efficient and reliable form of memory. Be sure the supplier you select also offers lifecycle management support and a locked BOM, so you won’t experience unanticipated compatibility issues in the field and so you have support as you transition to new storage as your current memory reaches the end of its useful life.


What kind of product customization options do they provide?

Customized testing is important, but so is product customization. For OEMs in particular, customizations are critical for delivering to their own customers. White-box packaging, customized labels, multi-card packs, logo printing, sequencing, and other customization options should be available. Additionally, if you don’t yet have a branded logo, opt for an industrial storage provider that can assist with the branding process.
