RunCore, leading supplier of high-performance solid-state drives, announces the global launch of its InVincible Solid State Disc drive. This SATA SSD solution provides for highest data security through a special button device that allows for total physical destruction with a single click.

The RunCore InVincible SSDs allow you to protect sensitive data from third party access in two ways with a single click. One method is the intelligent elimination of all your data through overwriting the entire disk with meaningless code. This overwrite-deletion method ensures that there is no way to potentially recover previous data stored to the device, effectively setting you SSD back to factory default.

A less subtle method is the physical destruction of your SSD by applying an over-current to the NAND flash memory and thereby physically destroying these. The RunCore InVincible product series is catering to embedded computer systems requiring high-speed serial switched fabric interconnects for rugged design implementation and more flexible power ranges. Delivering optimized storage options particularly in mission-critical fields such aerospace, military and general industrial applications.

“The mySSD O-Series is designed for high-threat and unpredictable environments in which durability and reliability is absolutely essential,” remarked Eric Tafolla, OEM Sales Engineer at Dane-Elec. “Flash-based SSD drives are steadily replacing outdated and less reliable spinning disk drives; however, one product does not fit every customer’s unique requirements. That is why we offer customized solutions, where our products are built to meet specific customer needs, in addition to our standard O-Series models.”

tdk_smg3b_msata_ssd.pngTDK Corporation has developed the mSATA type SSD (Solid- State Drive) SMG3B series with support for 3 Gbps serial ATA. The products will be available from July 2012.

The SMG3B series drives with mSATA interface measure only about 30 mm x 50 mm and offer storage capacities up to 64 GB. High-speed mSATA implementation achieves actual read access speed of 170 MB per second. The mSATA standard, established by the Serial ATA International Organization (SATA IO), was initially adopted mainly for digital consumer products such as tablet computers and netbooks. Because of its space-saving advantages, the standard is now gaining increased acceptance also for social infrastructure equipment and smart grid applications. Products designed for such uses must fulfill high requirements not only with regard to data reliability but also in terms of endurance, data security, reliability monitoring, and similar aspects.

The SMG3B series uses the TDK original SSD controller GBDriver RS3 , featuring powerful error correction expandable to 44-bit ECC. Data reliability has been significantly enhanced thanks to a sophisticated power interruption data preservation algorithm and the auto refresh function. Another special feature is the data randomizer that varies data patterns during writing to reduce the risk of bit errors.

OCZ Technology Group, Inc, a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) for computing devices and systems, and IceWEB Storage Corporation today announced that OCZ's SAS-based Talos 2 SSDs and SATA III-based Deneva 2 SSDs have been selected by IceWEB for inclusion in IceWEB's complete line of unified data storage systems. IceWEB leverages OCZ's enterprise-class SAS and SATA SSDs to enable its storage systems with ultra high performance of I/O intensive applications while lowering power consumption and associated cooling costs.

Today's enterprise, mission-critical applications demand very high levels of I/O performance from storage systems that hard disk drives (HDDs) simply cannot provide since they only deliver about 100 to 200 input/output operations per second (IOPS) performance. Therefore, in developing unified data storage systems that yield ultra high-performance, high reliability and availability, low power and cost-effectiveness, IceWEB required solid-state storage as these drives store and access data through NAND flash memory versus from spinning disks. In a typical industry comparison, it takes about 50 HDDs to provide the IOPS performance of one SSD, and an SSD only consumes a fraction of the power of an HDD.

After testing and evaluating competitive SSDs in the industry, IceWEB selected enterprise-class SAS and SATA-based SSDs from OCZ to enable all storage arrays in its unified storage platform with a choice of storage interfaces. Through this process, IceWEB was able to determine that both the Talos 2 and Deneva 2 SSDs from OCZ provided the best read/write IOPS performance, included high reliability and endurance tools to extend usable drive life, and leverages a product roadmap to enable growth within the IceWEB unified platform. The SSDs are also used for IceWEB's IceCAP™ Cache Acceleration Protocol, automated tiering and pure SSD disk tiers, enabling customers to provision an IceWEB unified system for maximum application performance and capacity as various business requirements dictate.
