Nimbus Data, a leading innovator in flash memory storage, today unveiled ExaDrive NL, the world’s highest capacity QLC flash SSD and the industry’s first QLC flash SAS SSD for enterprise workloads. With industry-leading capacity up to 64 TB in a single SSD, ExaDrive NL helps organizations eliminate server sprawl, reduce software licensing costs, improve efficiency, and reduce data center operating costs by up to 75%.
“Customers are always looking for more capacity and more efficient ways to access their data,” said Jeff Janukowicz, Research Vice President, IDC. “High capacity QLC flash SSDs, like Nimbus Data’s ExaDrive NL, help organizations migrate to enterprise-grade flash storage as cost-effectively as possible, while simplifying hybrid storage that blends HDDs and SSDs seamlessly to optimize cost and performance for their workloads.”
Accelerate and Scale While Reducing OpEx and Maximizing Existing Investments
By replacing hard drives with ExaDrive NL series SSDs, organizations can increase storage capacity by 4x, improve data access times by over 100x, and reduce power per terabyte by 75%. Available in a 3.5 inch form factor just like enterprise hard drives, ExaDrive NL is plug-and-play compatible with virtually any 3.5 inch HDD slot. While existing QLC SSDs cannot match the capacity of the latest hard drives, ExaDrive NL is available in 16 TB, 32 TB, and 64 TB sizes, easily eclipsing all HDDs and QLC SSDs on the market. This makes transitioning to flash more affordable than ever before, enabling organizations to increase capacity and reduce OpEx while preserving their existing servers, racks, power, and cooling equipment.Add a comment

Apricorn, the leading manufacturer of software-free, 256-bit AES XTS hardware-encrypted USB data storage devices, today announced that FIPS 140-2 level 3 validation (certification #3703) has been awarded to the Aegis Secure Key 3NX by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. This level of certification serves to authorize a device's use in industries and institutions -- healthcare, finance, defense, and legal; both nationally and globally -- in compliance with stringent data security regulations such as HIPAA, FERPA, Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, and GDPR.
Originally released in late 2018, the Aegis Secure Key 3NX employs the latest Apricorn Secure Key encryption chipset while delivering cooler operating temperatures and a wider range of storage capacities than its predecessor, the Secure Key 3z.
The 3NX FIPS validation comes just one month behind the release of its sister product, the Secure Key 3NXC, which is the same device but replaces the traditional USB "A" connector with a USB 3.2 C-type connector; the first USB C encrypted flash key to market. "Initially, the 3NX was designed as a lower cost alternative to the FIPS validated Secure Key 3z," said Kurt Markley, Apricorn's Director of Sales. "While the NX has all of the same security features as all of our other devices, it addressed the following encrypted flash key market needs: cooler operating temperatures, a wider (lower) range of storage capacities to better optimize the spend on devices, and lower price points for large corporate deployments that don't require FIPS. As the NX began to catch on, requests from companies requiring FIPS validation compelled us to obtain FIPS 140-2 level 3 validation on this device as well."Add a comment

In response to the long-distance business opportunities in the era of 5G IoT, and the trend towards storage of massive amounts of data, Apacer, a leading industrial storage and memory brand, has launched SSDs tailored specifically for network attached storage (NAS) applications. Apacer has been deeply involved in the field of industrial memory for more than 20 years, focusing on the development of non-volatile flash memory and SSD applications, and providing highly customized industrial-grade storage and memory solutions. Considering NAS users' stringent data storage and security requirements, Apacer's NAS SSDs combine high durability, high efficiency, high reliability, and silent operation. They make it easy to quickly upgrade from traditional hard drives or ordinary SSDs, and create security and reliability for home office or small-and-medium-business (SMB) NAS applications.
High Durability and Extended Service Life
Since an NAS system is expected to operate year-round, reliability is a prime concern. Apacer's NAS SSDs were created to prioritize the performance of a NAS system. Large amounts of data can be read and written smoothly 24/7, and the service life is more than 3 times longer than a consumer-grade SSD, meaning frequent replacements are unnecessary.Add a comment
