pureSilicon announced first 1TB 2.5-inch SSD

Posted on Monday, January 12 2009 @ 21:27:07 CET by

Last week pureSilicon introduced the first 2.5" solid state disk with a capacity of 1TB. The drive is part of the Nitro Series, which offers sustained read speeds of 240MB/s and write speeds of 215MB/s. Availability is slated for Q3 2009, pricing is unknown.
This represents a major advance for the storage industry since it combines maximum density with high performance and low power demand. Four of these drives deliver 4TB in the same space as a standard 3.5-inch HDD, so server footprint requirements and energy consumption in data-intensive applications can be considerably reduced.

The 1TB Nitro SSD is the most compact SSD per gigabyte: 15.40GB per cubic centimeter in a 2.5-inch form-factor -- at least three times greater than any other SSD on the market. This high density in a small form factor has been achieved through innovative engineering techniques coupled with advanced industrial design that yields an exceptionally thin enclosure.

This Nitro line of high-performance solid-state drives is designed for applications where data throughput and power consumption are paramount: server, networking, datacenter, supercomputing, and professional media. These applications require fast transfer speeds and involve the storage of massive amounts of data. pureSilicon has benchmarked these drives at speeds approaching the maximum bus speed of SATA II (300 MB/s).
