Seagate earned the distinction of being the best technology stock tracked by CRN in 2012. And while it's not at the top of this list, the continued rise in Seagate's stock price this year has been impressive.
In January Seagate moved to expand its flash storage product line through a joint development deal with (and a $40 million investment in) Virident Systems, under which the two will develop next-generation PCIe flash storage technologies.
