These drives enable security of data at rest and an often requested ability to perform a quick erase on command. They feature AES-256 encryption and FIPS 140-2 validation.
Data security is a requirement for all commercial and military applications. Data security breaches in the news are almost a daily occurrence. The need for data security for military data is even more obvious. Finally, the erase feature ensures that when drives are retired, turned in for repair or redeployed in new application, all the data is permanently removed first on command, in just a fews per drive. A hands-on and detailed white paper, FlashDisk Self Encrypting Drives and Secure Erase, shows how these two critical features work.
FlashDisk RAID disk arrays offer number of SED choices including:
3.5" SEDs: 7,200rpm: 2, 3, 4TB
2.5" SEDs: 10,000rpm: 600, 900GB
