Message Text: Toshiba Storage Device Division today announced its new family of enterprise-class solid state drives (SSDs). The new MKx001GRZB series combines Toshiba hard disk drive and NAND flash flash technology (HDD) expertise.

The 2.5-inch small form factor drives use the latest 32 nanometer (nm) enterprise grade single-level cell (eSLC) NAND flash memory from Toshiba and 6Gb/sec Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) interface. Samples of the new SSD will be available to Toshiba's customers for qualification in the first quarter of 2011. Volume volume production will begin in the first half of 2011.

"Toshiba stands alone in the market as the only SSD supplier that is vertically integrated for NAND flash and has deep enterprise HDD expertise. We possess one of the world's largest and most advanced NAND flash fabs, our own controller and firmware design teams, critical interface technologies, and established relationships with every major enterprise server and storage OEM. As a result, Toshiba is uniquely positioned to engineer solid state drives that deliver the performance, endurance, and reliability required for business critical applications," said Joel Hagberg, vice president of enterprise marketing at Toshiba Storage Device Division.

Available in capacities of 100GB, 200GB, and 400GB, the MKx001GRZB family of SSD drives is designed for ease of integration into new or existing tier-0 enterprise storage systems and designs, including servers, direct-attached storage, and network-attached storage. The drives promise to deliver performance that outpaces competing enterprise-class SSDs, with random sustained 90,000 read and 17,000 write IOPS and sequential sustained 510MB/sec read and 230MB/sec write throughput. Combined with a low power requirement of only 6.5 Watts at operation, the Toshiba SSD family also delivers a power efficiency rating of 13,800 IOPS/Watt.

For data storage that requires high reliability and high capacity - but not the very rapid access to data provided by SSDs - Toshiba has also released the new MKx001TRKB and MKx002TSKB series HDDs. The cost-effective nearline models feature a top storage capacity of 2TB in a traditional 3.5-inch form factor and leading-edge 6Gb/sec SAS3 and 3Gb/sec Serial ATA (SATA) interfaces. Intended for 24 x 7 operation, the MKx001TRKB and MKx002TSKB series drives also include features that are critical to business operations such as Error Correction (ECC), Rotational Vibration (RV) compensation technology for multi-drive systems, and enhanced power condition state technology.
