Greenliant Systems, a company which specialises in miniature energy efficient secure SSD products has announced production of its industrial grade SATA NANDrive. The NANDrive is currently available in a choice of 2GB, 4GB and 8GB, all SLC and features a 145 ball-pin BGA for mounting to a system motherboard. Being a non-removable soldered-on drive, it is designed for long-term installation such as robotics, automotive and military systems.
Texas Memory Systems (TMS), a company specialising in high speed storage and has the trademark “World’s Fastest Storage®” has introduced its RanSan-70, a 900GB half-length PCIe x8 card, utilising Toshiba’s newest 32nm SLC flash.
This week is once again an exciting time for SSD reviews with the main highlight being the Vertex 3 Pro, one of the first to feature the Sandforce SF-2582 controller. Several previews have been posted already by AnandTech, Legit Reviews and PC Perspective, so expect more including full reviews to come over the coming week.
Over the past week, one review that seemed a little surprising is the LSI MegaRAID controller reviewed by TweakTown, where they used 24 SSDs to test it out. Most consumers are reluctant to purchase a single SSD, never mind 24! So while the review surely puts the controller to the test, chances are that only enterprises will be using this type of set up.
