Freecom announces the launch in Europe of the mSSD Celeritas Thunderbolt 3 Drive – the fastest drive of its kind that can transfer files up to 20 times quicker than hard disk drives – making it ideal for video content creators and business and IT professionals where the transfer of large data files at high speed is critical.
The new Freecom Celeritas can deliver stunning speeds of up to 2800 MB/s (read) and 2000 MB/s (write). Comparing with other storage devices, transferring 500GB of data to a regular hard disk drive (at 100-150 MB/s) would take over 60 minutes and a regular SSD (at 450–500MB/s) would take around 16 minutes, while saving to the mSSD Celeritas (at 2800 MB/s) would only take approximately 4 minutes.Add a comment

SK Hynix Inc. launched the world’s first 96-Layer 512Gb (Gigabit) ‘CTF based 4D (Four-Dimensional) NAND Flash (4D NAND)’ based on its TLC (Triple-Level Cell) arrays, using 3D CTF (Charge Trap Flash) design paired with the PUC (Peri. Under Cell) technology. The Company will start the early stage of mass production of the 96-Layer 4D NAND within this year. A single 512Gb NAND Flash chip can represent 64GB (Gigabytes) storage.
SK Hynix combined its 3D CTF with PUC for the first time in the industry, which is different from the way of integrating 3D Floating Gate and PUC. As a result, it attained the industry’s finest performance and productivity. The Company named the product ‘CTF-based 4D NAND Flash’ to distinguish it from current 3D NAND Flash technologies.Add a comment

Showcasing its continued strength and leadership in enterprise-capacity storage solutions, Western Digital today announced the industry’s highest capacity HDD, the 15TB Ultrastar DC HC620 host-managed SMR HDD. The Ultrastar DC HC620 delivers an unprecedented capacity point with a time-to-market advantage for customers who have invested in, and continue to take advantage of the benefits of SMR.
“With data continuing to grow at unprecedented rates, many hyperscale and cloud storage customers know that their workloads trend toward data that is written sequentially. In these instances, customers are optimizing their infrastructures with the lowest TCO and the maximum capacity,” said Eyal Bek, vice president of product marketing, Western Digital. “By capitalizing on our highest-capacity SMR storage solutions, our customers’ investment can not only be fully leveraged today, but for subsequent generations of SMR areal density improvements for continued infrastructure optimization.”
Setting a new bar for TCO, the Ultrastar 15TB host-managed SMR HDD is well positioned for hyperscale cloud and traditional data center workloads, including large video surveillance “smart city” initiatives, storage for regulatory compliance and Big Data storage. Enabling the world’s densest server and storage systems, incorporating 15TB HDDs allows a fully populated 4U60 HDD enclosure to reach a raw storage capacity of 900TB, which is an additional 60TB per 4U rack in the same footprint compared to those utilizing 14TB HDDs. In an at-scale environment where floor space, $/TB, TB per square foot, or watts per terabyte are critical, this TCO savings can be significant.Add a comment
