This is a Press Release edited by StorageNewsletter.com on 2010.02.08
Foremay, Inc., in solid state drives and one of the world’s Top 5 SSD OEMs, announced the EC188 D-series PCIe solid state hard drive with standard PCIe card host interfaces.
The EC188 D-series PCIe SSD is designed for servers, workstations and desktops with x4 PCIe, x8 PCIe or x16 PCIe slots, with speeds up to 1.6 GB/s for reading and 1.5 GB/s for writing, and read/write IOPS up to 200K/180K. The jumbo capacity of the EC188 D-series PCI Express SSD scales up to 4 TB. It helps solve the storage bottleneck problem in dense I/O, heavy traffic load, and high speed computing applications such as enterprise servers, studio workstations, database storage and high-end computers.
“IOPS is one of the major pain points to be addressed in the deployment of today’s high-end and mission-critical servers and workstations,” said Dr. Jack Winters, Foremay’s CTO and co-founder. “We hope that our new EC188 D-series PCIe SSD card, with greater than 100K IOPS and more than 1 GB/s bandwidth, can help solve problems in the majority of those computing applications where IOPS or speed is the bottleneck.”
Some application examples for EC188 PCIe card SSD are:
- Enterprise servers / workstations
- Real time processing servers such as in stock exchange systems
- Database storage
- Recording/editing/transmitting of film, HD video, and HDTV
- 3D modeling
- High-end gaming machines
- EAD/IC design simulation, extraction and verification
- Scientific research
- Medical imaging
- Web hosting servers and mail servers
The EC188 D-series PCIe cards support a wide variety of operating systems, including Windows 7/Vista/XP/2000/Server, Mac OS X 10.4/5/6, Solaris, Linux, UNIX, etc. It also comes with built-in PCIe RAID controller to give users flexibility for more scalability or redundancy protection.
EC188 D-series PCIe SSD Availability
EC188 D-series PCIe SSD cards are now shipping in small quantities. Volume production is expected starting in March 2010.
