Foremay, Inc. has announced their new 4TB and 8TB SATA 6Gb/s SSDs. SATA SSDs are one of the hottest growth segments in the datacenter, and more capacity is always welcome. There are SAS SSDs with up to 4TB of capacity, such as the SanDisk Optimus MAX, but the introdcution of a high-capacity SATA SSD will broaden the use-case for high-capacity SSDs. Foremay focuses on the OEM market, and the new SSDs are geared for servers and ruggedized applications. The EC188 and SC199 features a random read/write speed of 100K/100K, and sequential read/write speeds of 500/500 MB/s.

The SSDs feature AES-256 encryption and are TCG Opal 2.0 compliant and feature military-grade secure erase functionality. The new SSDs are designed for high heat environments to provide reliability in enterprise and industrial applications. Foremay SSDs are custom built, and can also equipped with a supercapacitor to provide power loss protection. There simply aren't any SSD controllers on the market to address that much flash, so this is likely to be a custom solution with a bridge device akin to the Intelliprop Hydra SATA bridge we evaluated recently.

The quest for benchmark world records led Paul further and further down the overclocking rabbit hole. SSDs and RAID controllers were a big part of that equation, allowing him to push performance to the bleeding edge. Finding the fastest and most extreme storage solutions led to experience with a myriad of high-end enterprise devices. Soon testing SSDs and Enterprise RAID controllers at the limits of their performance became Paul's real passion, one that is carried out through writing articles and reviews.
