Publisher: Toshibe Electronics Europe

Toshiba Electronics Europe (TEE) has launched a new enterprise SSD (eSSD) designed to support the widest possible range of read intensive-applications. The PX03SNx series is available with capacities of 200GB[1]  (PX03SNF020), 400GB (PX03SNF040), 800GB (PX03SNF080) and 1.6TB[1] (PX03SNB160).

Equipped with fast 12Gbit/s SAS-3.0 interfaces, the eSSDs are optimized for read-intensive, and low-write-duty storage applications in server systems used in applications such as online transactions, cloud computing, online gaming, DVI video streaming and big data analytics.

The PX03SNx series feature 19nm MLC NAND and support one full drive write per day with 100% random data workload.

The 200GB, 400GB and 800GB eSSDs reach sequential read speeds of 1,100MiB/s while the 1.6TB PX03SNB160 achieves sequential read speeds of 1,060MiB/s. All drives deliver sequential write speeds up to 380MiB/s, random read write speeds up to 26,000 IOPS and random read speeds up to 130,000 IOPS.

The PX03SNx series incorporates power loss protection as well as Toshiba’s robust and highly efficient Quadruple Swing-By Code (QSBC™) for improved error correction and reliability.

Customer samples of the PX03SNx range will begin shipping this month, for more information please visit the Toshiba storage website at
