SMART Modular Technologies Releases XceedIOPS2 SATA SSD
SMART Modular Technologies released XceedIOPS2, second generation of XceedIOPS™ serial ATA (SATA) solid state drives (SSDs). Leveraging state-of-the-art functions and proprietary technologies, the XceedIOPS2 SATA SSD is available in 1.8″ and 2.5″ form factors for enterprise storage and server systems.
Equipped with the latest SandForce(R) SF-2000 series SSD processor and a 6Gb/s SATA interface, the XceedIOPS2 enterprise-class SSD is optimized for use in high-volume virtualized storage applications. Available in densities from 50 to 400 GB, the new XceedIOPS2 SATA SSD delivers high random performance of 60K IOPS and sequential performance of 520MB/s. The available 1.8″ form factor addresses applications with restricted real estate, such as blade servers and other high-density computing systems.
The XceedIOPS2 SATA SSDs are manufactured using the latest enterprise-grade multi-level cell (E-MLC) NAND flash technology, which offers specified endurance of 30,000 program/erase (P/E) cycles. In addition, the new SSDs support AES-256 encryption and are Trusted Computing Group (TCG) enterprise compliant. To ensure consistent, reliable performance and data protection, the XceedIOPS2 SATA SSDs are equipped with extensive error-correction and detection, multi-level data-path and code protection, data-fail recovery, thermal management, advanced management features, and SMART’s proprietary PowerGuard™ technology. This unique combination of features results in the industry’s highest reliability in the field, which is backed by a five-year warranty.
“The XceedIOPS2 SATA SSD from SMART leverages industry-leading technologies proven to meet the requirements of Tier-1 enterprise applications,” said John Scaramuzzo, Senior Vice President and General Manager of SMART’s Storage Business Unit. “This second generation product incorporates advances in both established and proprietary technologies, resulting in a highly reliable design that delivers best-of-breed SSD cost and performance for the enterprise.”
The XceedIOPS2 SATA SSDs are available now in engineering samples for select customers. A version using commercial MLC flash is available for entry-level server environments.
