M-Systems - New SATA drive|
"Our position within the industry allows us to use the most cost-effective flash components along with our technology to provide SATA drives like this with greater reliability at higher capacities," said Ofer Tsur, vice president of sales and marketing for M-Systems' Embedded division. "This new SATA drive completes our portfolio of ATA and SCSI hard-drive replacements and allows a broader range of customers to benefit from our leading flash disk technology."
M-Systems FFD - SATA products
M-Systems' FFD SATA product complies with the stringent reliability requirements offset for mission critical applications such as NEBS level 3 for the telecommunication industry and the MIL-STD 810F standard for military and aerospace. With no moving parts, flash-based storage devices like M-Systems' FFD SATA are able to operate under the harshest conditions, unlike magnetic hard disk drives. In a rugged environment, the rotating mechanisms of a hard drive can fail, and are subject to partial and sometimes even total loss of data. Severe conditions, including high shock, vibration, altitude, humidity and extreme temperature ranges, increase failure rate percentages of hard disk drives, which is unacceptable for mission critical systems.
FFD Flash Disk - Serial ATA technology
Serial ATA technology is quickly becoming the dominant interface for data storage devices migrating from the parallel ATA interface. In addition to enhanced reliability and performance, M-Systems' FFD 2.5" SATA offers all benefits of this new high speed interface, including thinner and longer cables and a hot-swap functionality. These features make M-Systems' FFD 2.5" SATA ideal for the blade servers, telecommunication systems and aerospace industries as well as military applications.
M-Systems FFD 2.5-inch SATA - Standardized
Supporting stringent security standards required by military and other mission critical applications, M-Systems' FFD 2.5" SATA is equipped with a fast security erase feature and complies with the sanitizing standards of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), National Security Agency (NSA), Navy, Air Force (FSSI) and IREC (IRIG).
