With the additional AES-256 engine and P-fail feature options, PS3110 is able to offer a comprehensive product line across client, industrial, entry-level enterprise, and data center SSD solutions.
Plextor, a leading developer of digital storage technology, is pleased to announce that their Plextor M6e PCIe SSD has won Best of Show for most Innovative Flash Memory Technology at the Flash Memory Summit in Santa Clara, California. The FMS Best of Show Awards is a premier venue for industry recognition of innovative products.
The tiny but powerful M6e PCIe fits into a PC motherboard's M.2 slot without need of a power or data cable. Most notably, this Solid State Drive brings small form factors—or NGFF (Next Generation Form Factor)—into the performance picture while at the same time providing greater bandwidth and incredible speed. PCI express handily bypasses the SATA speed bottleneck to significantly improve performance for extreme users and elite gamers. Impressive numbers tell the story: maximum sequential read/write speeds of 770/625 MB/s and random read/write speeds of 105/100K IOPS.
Plextor, leading developer of digital storage technology, has launched its new M6 PRO SATA SSD. The M6 PRO combines fast and stable Plextor hardware with intelligent RAM caching utility called PlexTurbo. First previewed at Computex 2014, the M6 PRO with PlexTurbo set a new standard for SATA SSDs.
PlexTurbo is intelligent utility that uses some of the system RAM as an ultra-smart RAM cache, bypassing limitations of the 6 Gb/s SATA III channel and delivering additional speed for real-world applications. In addition to outperforming competing technology, PlexTurbo minimizes RAM usage, uses active data comparisons to prevent unnecessary writes, and prevents RAM cache data loss if power is interrupted.
The M6 PRO’s hardware uses a new generation of A19 nm Toshiba toggle NAND flash and a multi-core Marvell controller with Plextor’s in-house developed firmware. The M6 PRO has a new ultra-low-power and fast-resume DEVSLP mode that gives longer battery life to notebooks and reduces wasted power in desktop systems while retaining responsiveness. The M6 PRO features the latest version of Plextor’s acclaimed long-term performance-sustaining True Speed technology. Also included is Plextor's True Protect system, with multilayer data integrity and security provided by 256-bit AES full-drive encryption.
BiTMICRO Networks, Inc. today announced MAXio E-Series PCIe solid state drives (SSDs). Powered by BiTMICRO's patented Talino ASIC Architecture, the new MAXio E-Series SSD delivers superior capacity, performance and reliability for companies that need to support high volume application workloads.
BiTMICRO MAXio E-Series SSDs are based on the company's industry proven Talino ASIC Architecture which is used by strategic partners including RunCore, one of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of solid state products and solutions in China. "BiTMICRO has developed a truly revolutionary architecture that is very high performance, but also high capacity to meet the burgeoning application demands of our customers in China and around the globe," said Limuel Yap, Vice President, Technical and Business Development, RunCore. "It changes the way people think and address their enterprise storage requirements."
ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high-performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash application products, today launches the industrial grade ISSS312 2.5” SATA III (6Gb/s) Solid State Drive. It features low power consumption, industrial grade S.M.A.R.T. and power loss protection (PLP) for excellent performance and reliability. It also provides MLC, A+ SLC, SLC grades and wide temperature to meet the upgrade requirements of industrial equipment and enterprise devices.
Since storage applications are rapidly changing, the concepts of consumer digital lifestyles and the Internet of Things (I.O.T.) are developing, and web applications and technology are growing sharply, the industrial equipment and enterprise platforms need more powerful data computing capability, real-time transfer rate and high I/O throughput to cope with future trends. The ADATA ISSS312 2.5” SATA 6Gb/s SSD provides solutions of MLC, A+ SLC, and SLC grades with the sequential read/write speed up to 530/500 MB/s and MTBF of up to 2 million hours. In addition, the low power consumption of 2W can effectively save power and extend the lifespan of devices. With excellent performance and durability, the ISSS312 is perfect for long-term operations of industrial systems. The industrial grade extends temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, which is suitable for high-end instruments and equipment in harsh environments.
CDRLabs has taken an in depth look at Plextor's new 256GB M6S Series SSD, the PX-256M6S. This highly efficient, high-performance SSD combines Marvell's 88SS9188 "Monet Lite" controller with Toshiba's Advanced 19nm (A19) Toggle Mode MLC NAND to deliver up to 520MB/s read and 440MB/s write transfer rates. The M6S also features support for Plextor's exclusive True Speed technology as well as the Device Sleep (DEVSLP) standard which extends the battery life of a device by reducing the drive's power consumption to a mere 2 mW when it's not in use.
