Greenliant Systems, a leader in energy-efficient, highly secure and reliable solid state storage products, has introduced its new G7100 Series G-card NVMe flash storage products to select system integrators, OEMs, enterprise and Internet customers. G-card is Greenliant’s high capacity NVMe flash storage solution designed for primary storage applications that require ultra-high reliability with sustainable low-latency and high IOPS performance. Building on Greenliant’s expertise in embedded storage, G-card complements the NANDrive™ and ArmourDrive™ solid state drive (SSD) families to provide a comprehensive portfolio of data storage solutions.
G-card utilizes Greenliant’s advanced controller and an array of NANDrive SSDs in a standard PCIe add-in card form factor. In contrast to other PCIe flash cards that use discrete NAND, G-card deploys Distributed ECC Architecture with each NANDrive building-block having its own ECC engine. This innovative architecture not only improves scalability in card capacity, but also ensures sustainable performance and reliability during the product life. In addition to the distributed ECC engines, G-card is equipped with on-board hardware RAID to provide an industry leading system-level lifetime endurance of up to 10 Drive Writes Per Day (DWPD) for 5 years. With an intelligent power interrupt data protection circuit for the on-board buffer memory, G-card can commit host write operations without risk of data loss due to sudden power interruptions. Being NVMe compliant, G-card is bootable on multiple operating systems.
Toshiba Corporation’s Semiconductor & Storage Products Company today announced the launch of the world’s first SDHC memory card with built-in NFC (Near Field Communication) functions. Sales of the 8GB, 16GB and 32GB cards will start from February 2015. The new cards will be featured at 2015 International CES, in Las Vegas, U.S.A., from January 6 to January 9.
