Memory and storage specialist Integral has launched Crypto SSD, its first range of solid-state drives (SSDs) to feature military-level, AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) 256-bit hardware encryption. As well as the secure, convenient and low-cost protection of sensitive data, the new drives offer all the benefits of solid-state storage. This includes low-power operation, silent running, rapid boot time and, as there are no moving parts, higher reliability and enhanced resistance to shock and vibration.

Protecting sensitive data through encryption is becoming a mandatory requirement for a wide range of organisations as bodies such as the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) impose increasingly severe penalties for data protection breaches resulting from lost and stolen computers. Crypto SSD is a ‘fit and forget’ solution with a low total cost of ownership (TCO) that will allow banks, law firms, educational establishments, healthcare professionals, local government and a variety of other business and public sector organisations to meet their data protection obligations.

MOSAID’s Terabyte-class HLSSDs are optimized for data centers and the enterprise. Based on HLNAND™ (HyperLink NAND) technology, MOSAID’s HLSSDs deliver scalability, performance, reliability and cost advantages over SSDs that use conventionally designed NAND Flash devices.

MOSAID’s prototype HLSSD utilizes a single FPGA-based SATA3 controller to deliver 2TB capacity over four HLNAND channels. In comparison, a conventional 2TB SSD requires four SATA3 controllers, plus a SATA3 hub controller, operating over 32 channels.
