Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced it is shipping its high capacity 32GB DataTraveler 150 (DT150) USB Flash drive. The DT150 offers the largest capacity in Kingston’s entire line of DataTraveler® USB drives and allows users to conveniently combine work-related content and personal digital content on the same drive with plenty of room to spare. Users can now transport and share entire libraries of music, photos, large business documents, and even video without ever having to change USB drives or search other portable storage devices containing specific content.

“The new DataTraveler 150 has broken through storage barriers by allowing users to store all their digital files ― business or personal ― all under one roof,” said Mark Akoubian, Flash business manager, Kingston®. “As file sizes increase especially with content such as music and photos, the need for small form factor storage drives with high capacities will continue to go up. The DT 150 certainly addresses those needs today.”

Traxdata announced today that it has added solid state drives (SSD) to its product lineup. The Ultra-S Plus Series MLC is available in capacities up to 128GB and is capable of 110MB/s read and 78MB/s write speeds. The Ultra-S Plus Series SLC boosts performance even further with support for 119MB/s read and 99MB/s write speeds.

The new SSD range includes the Ultra-S Plus Series multi-level cell (MLC) and the Ultra-S Plus Series single-level cell (SLC) in order to suit a variety of needs. The Ultra-S Plus Series MLC is available in varying sizes of 32, 64 and 128 GB and allows users to read up to 110MB of data per second and write up to 78MB per second; while the Ultra-S Plus Series SLC reads up to 119MB per second and writes up to 99MB per second and is available in 32 and 64 GB.

SSD is a particularly stable and reliable storage solution as there are no mechanical moving parts like there are in a traditional hard disk drive. A SSD drive therefore allows faster access to data and eliminates the risk of mechanical failure.

Super Talent recently announced its new line of cost-effective consumer solid state drives (SSDs). Available in 64GB and 128GB capacities, the MasterDrive LX is built with NAND flash and uses a SATA-II 3Gbps interface that is capable of 100MB/s read and 40MB/s write speeds. Best of all, the 128GB unit retails for less than $300.

Fusion-io, a leading provider of solid state technology and high-performance I/O solutions, unveiled its first consumer product, the ioXtreme, at the E for All conference and expo. The ioXtreme brings high-end PC users 80 GB of PCI-Expressbased, high-performance, solid state storage that was designed for the world’s fastest supercomputers.

“Imagine working on complex 3-D graphics, unzipping and manipulating massive files even installing a new application—all at the same time,” said David Flynn, CTO of Fusion-io. “Suddenly, with the ioXtreme, tasks that would have brought your system to its knees are no longer limited by the disks spinning loudly inside your box.”

Mechanical disk drive technology, inspired by Edison’s phonograph and originally invented over forty years ago, hasn’t kept up with the performance of today’s PCs. Multi-core CPU’s that perform tens of billions of instructions per second sit needlessly idle waiting for disks to access files. The seemingly endless delays starting applications, manipulating large files or doing just about anything that involves moving data to or from disk can now be a thing of the past. The new memory tier offered with the ioXtreme closes this performance gap, allowing PC users to utilize disk drives for what they do best—providing inexpensive, high-capacity archival storage.
