pureSilicon has introduced the Renegade R2, a series of rugged SLC based solid state disks that meet MIL-STD-810F standards. They are available in 1.8" and 2.5" form factors with capacities ranging from 4GB to 256GB. The pureSilicon Renegade R2 series features sequantial read speeds of 255MB/s, sequential write speeds of 180MB/s, random read performance of 18,000 IOPS at 4K and random write performance of 1,200 IOPS at 4K.
The Renegade R2 is the drive in question, and it's now shipping to those willing to pay a premium to get speeds that are much faster than those offered by mere HDDs. The drive meets MIL-STD-810F standards while offering 255 MB/s read performance and 180 MB/s write performance. It also has improved IOPS (random read: 18,000 IOPS @ 4K; random write: 1,200 IOPS @ 4K), and the proprietary SiPher data security tech ensures that only you (or your most trusted friends) have access to the data.

They're available right now in 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB sizes (in a SATA II setup, low-profile 9.5mm height 2.5" form factor); the 256GB, PATA and 1.8" form factor drives will start shipping in Q1 2010 alongside the encrypted versions.
