OCZ Announces Razer Fast SSD @ 2800MB/s

OCZ has recently shown off their latest Z-Drive R4 PCIe SSD, capable of transferring a whopping 2800MB/s of data and competing 500K IOPS. The new drive is optimal for cloud computing and enterprise data applications.

You can get the card in two configurations; a half height card designed for tight spaces, and a full height card that is perfect for those larger multi-node rackmount servers.

Both cards support SLC (single level cell) or MLC (multi level cell) NAND flash. If you are looking for sheer speed, you’re going to want this solid-state drive.

Kingston Launches HyperX SandForce SSD

For the users who prefer to use high performing SSDs on their devices, Kingston has just released it’s recent HyperX SandForce SSD which is worth checking out.

Kingston announced the release of HuperX Sandforce a couple of months ago and now it is ready for shipping. The SSDs feature an extraordinary read and write speed.

These SSDs feature 120GB and 240GB storage capacities. They are capable of up to 555MB/s of sequential read speed and 510MB/s sequential write speed.

Sandisk Ultra Solid State Drive (SSD)

To store persistent data in your computers, SanDisk is back by unveiling the new Solid State Drive (SSD). This new SSD (dubbed, Ultra) can increase performance of your system by consuming less power of the computer. It will definitely increase battery life of a laptop as it consumes less power.

Different from ordinary hard Disk Drives (HDD) which consumes high power and are electromagnetic devices, it retains data in nonvolatile memory chips. As it has no moving parts like HDD where Data is stored in Spinning Disks, there is a smaller chance of damaging it.

Patriot Pyro Series SATA 6 Gbps SSDs Coming Soon

Just 2 weeks after Patriot launched the Wildfire SSDs, it declared to launch an impressive high performance solid state drive series known as Patriot Pyro Series.

The key features of this amazing drive is the SandForce SF-2281 Processor and SATA 3 6Gbps connection interface. In addition, it features TRIM command support alongwith DuraClass and DuraWrite for exceptional performance. It also has the RAISE(Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements) and a is protected by ECC(Error Checking and Correction) support.

Intel Cloud In A Box – World’s Smallest Cloud Data Center

Billing it as “the world’s smallest data center”, Intel’s cloud technology demonstrator is basically two 1U servers in a package that fits into a common rolling suitcase.

Designed to show that Intel is already powering the cloud with its Xeon processors, the technology demonstration is also meant to highlight Intel’s other efforts to bring their Cloud 2015 vision to reality.

Go Full Speed With Corsair Force GT SSD

While 2.5″ hard disk drives are certainly small, they aren’t always the fastest out of the bunch. If you’re looking for real speed and increased data dependability, you might want to look into solid state drives. The new Corsair Force GT is a SATA III drive that offers 550Mbps read and 5xx write speeds.

It even comes in an unusual red coating, which makes it stand out in comparison to similar drives. Although fast, the drives do not come cheap as solid-state technology remains to be ‘the latest & greatest’ in storage media.

FlashSoft Raises $3 Million In Funding

Flashsoft, a company founded in November 2009, provides software that allows data center administrators to direct data from a server, to a flash-based solid state drive. The transition to solid state drives allow the data to move closer to the processor, and with the Flashsoft software, applications are able to run faster.

The software is similar to what memcached does for web servers. Flashsoft has recently raised $3 million in funding led by Thomvest Ventures.

New Cloudbox From Lacie Keeps Your Data Safe

LaCie now has a new cloud storage system called the CloudBox that is essentially a hard drive that backs up your files both locally and wireless to a cloud-based platform. When it comes to data protection, you’re always going to want to have a backup in case there are technical difficulties over the cloud (on the web).

For $200 a year, users will get 100GB of cloud data storage. The device itself costs $200 and the first year of storage is free. Users can then opt to either renew the contract or drop the cloud service.

Ultra-Rugged Waterproof Notebook W/ 128GB SSD

The new General Dynamic GD2000 is the most rugged notebook you’ll ever find. The reason I say that is because it’s the first waterproof notebook that I have ever heard of.

Okay, so I’ll admit it isn’t the sexiest computing machine I’ve seen, but come on, it’s waterproof! The GD2000 is a small 5.6″ notebook that carries an Intel Celeron M processor, operating at 1.2GHz and houses 2GB of DDR3 RAM.

Intel 710 + 720 SSDs Get Leaked

We have just got word of the leaked enterprise solid state drives from Intel. The Intel 710 “Lyndonville” and the Intel 720 “Ramsdale” are now in the spotlight. The 710 has 25nm HET MLC, a more durable form of MLC (multi-level cell). The 710 comes in a number of capacities, 100GB, 200GB, and 300GB, claiming to have read and write speeds of 270MB/s over 210MB/s, running on a solid 3Gbps SATA connection.

The 720 comes on 34nm SLC (single-level cell) chips, and comprises a 200GB and 400GB capacity. The speeds it carries are read/write of up to 2200MB/s over 1800MB/s, which may be a typo from the leaked roadmap or the majority of solid-state drives will drastically go down in price.
