CES 2013
     Wed, Jan 16 2013 | 1:04A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last in line was Mushkin`s Atlas series mSata drives. While an mSATA drive may not seem all that impressive, and for the most part have been limited to 256GB in capacity, Mushkin put together a way to break that barrier and pack up to 480GB into the form factor. By using a dual-PCB approach, the NAND is essentially contained on two boards that feature three interconnects for the data and power to pass through. An innovative solution to the capacity problem in the mSATA form factor to be sure. I have seen this in use with PCIe SSDs in the past, but not when used in this form factor. This small drive uses an unthrottled Sandforce SF-2281, controlling high speed MLC NAND to deliver performance up to 540MB/s Read, 425MB/s Write, and 78,000 IOPS (4K ran read), with an Access Time <0.1ms. All from a drive smaller than a Zippo lighter."

EonNAS 1100 NAS Network Storage Server @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, Jan 15 2013 | 11:56P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Data Rot! Every time a compact disk gives up the ghost and you some files, you`ve experienced it. All digital storage technologies are susceptible to data rot, AKA bit rot. Benchmark Reviews recently highlighted reliability issues that SSD users are experiencing; their flash memory failures have been an eye-opening experience for consumers. We all know how a hard drive crashes, but we`re not so clear on how electrons disappear. Large data centers have been acutely aware of this problem, and the industry devised ways of eliminating it. Now, Infortrend is making that technology available to consumers, with their new EonNAS series. The key to data integrity is in the ZFS file system, that`s part of the Sun-based OS installed in the EonNAS 1100. Plus, it performs data deduplication on the fly! Read on to find out more..."

SSD NEWS: SanDisk Ultra Plus SSD Review (256GB)
     Tue, Jan 15 2013 | 7:35P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our evaluation of the SanDisk Ultra Plus SSD surpasses that of a typical analysis, in that, it provides the reader with the ability to understand what is possible if you are the `Owner of The Fab`. In this SSD build, SanDisk has not only moved to the new Marvell 9175 controller but also, they introduce nCache, a totally new performance and endurance enhancement that is possible only with the control of flash memory that a manufacturer of that memory would have. Our SSD analysis today will provide you with, not only the information you need to decide if the SanDisk Ultra Plus is the SSD for you but also, a very easy understanding of nCache through the straightforward explanation of the most basic SSD principles, many of which most still don`t understand.

REVIEW: OCZ Vector 256GB @ PureOverclock
     Tue, Jan 15 2013 | 4:39P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ has an impressive history of innovation in the SSD market, leading the way in many respects, and whether it`s fair or not, they`re the target and we hold OCZ to the highest standard. And so OCZ is responding to the consumer/enthusiast`s growing demand for a fast and reliable drive that performs as well with incompressible data as it does with compressible data. OCZ is also responding to the demand for a drive that retains its performance in a peak condition over time as well as greatly extending the life span of the NAND with their new Proprietary Indilinx Ndurance 2.0 Technology. The OCZ Vector is the result, promising enthusiast-classed performance to battle the SandForce drives. But how does the performance of the Vector measure up? Is it worth the investment? Let`s dive in and find out."

CES 2013: OWC @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Jan 15 2013 | 1:46P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OWC, a.k.a. Otherworld Computing, showed off primarily three new products: the Accelsior, the Viper, and the KR. The Accelsior is a storage system using PCI-Express to serve up SSD blades. Configured in RAID 0, the drives were capable of more than 1300 MBps read and a very impressive write speed.
