Toshiba Launches Enterprise Endurance SSDs

New eSSDs bring increased speed and endurance to business-critical storage infrastructures
Released: 19th November 2013
Publisher: Toshiba Electronics Europe

Toshiba Electronics Europe (TEE) has expanded its range of Enterprise-class SSDs with the launch of a new range of Enterprise Endurance SSDs designed for use in business-critical server and storage platforms.  

Using the advanced 24nm eMLC (enterprise multi-level cell) NAND technology, the new PX02SSx series is available with capacities of 100GB[1] (PX02SSF010), 200GB (PX02SSF020), 400GB (PX02SSF040), 800GB (PX02SSB080).

Thanks to a novel use of the eMLC NAND, the drive achieves random write speeds up to 42KIOPS, random read speeds of up to 130KIOPS and increases eSSD endurance capability to 30 full drive writes per day (DWPD).  These high-levels of endurance and performance make the drives ideal for use in applications such as data processing and online transaction applications.

The 2.5-inch {6.4 cm} drives feature a dual-port 12Gb/sec SAS interface and incorporate Toshiba’s proprietary Quadruple Swing-By Code (QSBC™) for improved error correction and reliability. Cryptographic erase versions of the eSSDs are also available: PX02SSU010 (100GB), PX02SSU020 (200GB), PX02SSU040 (400GB), PX02SSQ080 (800GB). 

The tidal wave of enterprise data continues to grow at an astonishing rate, and many businesses are struggling to balance this surge in data volume with the requirement for fast, effective and reliable storage. With the launch of the PX02SSx series, Toshiba has applied its industry-leading expertise to meet the constant access needs of the dynamic data environment in a modern business.
