Toshiba is one of the largest presences here at FMS 2015. Today, we got a chance to check out their newest gear.




First up are Toshiba's client-side SATA SSDs. Toshiba's HG6 Series SSDs are designed for read-intensive applications ranging from Ultrabook's, to low endurance data center deployments. These SATA-based SSDs employ cost effective and durable A19nm Toggle 2.0 MLC flash and Toshiba's proprietary QSBC ECC technology.




Next up we have Toshiba's XG3 Series client side high-performance PCIe NVMe SSDs for PCs and read intensive data center applications. The XG3 series is available in an M.2 Gen 3 x4 and the first of its kind SATA Express form factor. The drives will be available in capacities of up to 1024GB. Also announced is Toshiba's BG1 Series SSD on a chip. This tiny SSD is designed for ultra-thin mobile PCs and tablets. The drive is available as a single BGA package or an M.2-2230 removable module. The BG1 series is available in capacities up to 256GB.




Moving to the Enterprise side, Toshiba is launching their best-in-class performance PX04S Enterprise SAS SSD Series. This dual port SAS SSD is available in 4 flavors, 25 DWPD (Drive Write Per Day) High-Endurance, 10 DWPD Mid-Endurance, 3 DWPD Value Endurance and 1 DWPD Read Intensive. The difference in endurance and performance between the models is achieved by overprovisioning.




The PX04P Enterprise PCIe SSD Series is the highest performing model of Toshiba's Enterprise class SSDs. The drive is available in two form factors, 2.5" and HHHL AIC. Both form factors deliver sustained 4K random R/W performance of up to 660/185K IOPS. These drives are unique in that they can be easily tuned for both power consumption and performance by the customer. The PX04P Series utilizes industry standard OS driver, and carries a 5-year warranty.


Toshiba's newest products reinforce their position as an industry leader.
