SMART Modular XceedIOPS SF-1500 Powered SAS SSD Preview

Manufacturer: SMART Modular

Specifications, Pricing and Availability




SMART Modular is a little vague with their specification sheet. The XceedIOPS is a 2.5" form factor drive with a rated sequential read speed of 250MB/s and a write speed of 230MB/s. This is quite a bit lower than the 285 / 275MB/s desktop units that we are used to seeing on the desktop side of things, but just as the name implies, the XceedIOPS is built for high IOPS performance with sequential speed being secondary. This is exactly the same thing we see with all enterprise drives.


When it comes to pricing and availability, I'm not even going to try to speculate. As we all are aware, enterprise products are premium and are priced accordingly. They are also produced in far fewer numbers than their desktop counterpart.


The point of this article today is really to see what these new SandForce SAS drives have to offer and get a good idea of their performance.
