Earlier today, Toshiba announced a new SSD from its Storage Products Business. The new PX02SS is a new 2.5-inch enterprise-grade solid state drive that is available in capacities up to 800GB. Toshiba says that this new SSD is designed for various write-intensive enterprise applications and is an ideal solution for large workloads.
The new PX02SS is built around a 12Gb/second interface with select models utilizing self-encrypting technology. Toshiba says that the drive is capable of supporting up to 30 full drive writes per day, and that features a layered error code correction approach which improves reliability.
"Toshiba's unique integrated SSD design and manufacturing capability ensures that key components of the SSD, including NAND flash, are designed by Toshiba," said Don Jeanette, senior director of product marketing at Toshiba Storage Products Business Unit. "Component and design commonality reduces qualification time for our customers and reflects Toshiba's partner-driven approach to SSD design and manufacturing, helping our customers save time and money."
