SSDs get SATADIMM option

Posted: 24 Aug 2010 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share


Viking Modular Solutions has come up with what it bills as the world's first SATADIMM solid-state drive (SSD), promising higher capacities and significant power savings, and greater performance.

The Enterprise Class SATA II SSD uses an industry-standard DDR3 240-pin DIMM form factor (JEDEC MO-269), giving system designers new options and greater flexibility in new server design. Data transfer is accomplished using a standard SATA cable while power is derived from the 1.5V supply to the DIMM socket. Other features include best-in-class sequential and random access performance of 30,000 IOPS, intelligent write management techniques, and power fail data protection using super capacitor integration.

"Viking Modular is the first to deliver a groundbreaking, flexible and efficient method of enabling SSD integration into standard server and storage appliances," Adrian Proctor, Viking Modular vice president of marketing, said "It can breathe new life into maxed out systems with the high performance and low power consumption of SSD technology. Furthermore, it opens up the possibility for new design, no longer constrained by standard hard drive space requirements."

Sanmina-SCI will manufacture the SATADIMM SSD in 50GB, 100GB or 200GB capacities.
