The industrial IIoT market demands storage with durability and tolerance to high temperatures, as well as strong security and data integrity - all requirements that StorFly SSDs address. As with other industrial-embedded systems, IIoT storage requires capacities optimized for designs - typically much lower than those for the consumer and enterprise markets - to ensure power, space and cost efficiencies. Still, with capacity now taking on greater importance in IIoT, this generation of drives enable the company to continue meeting the expanding market needs.
"IIoT storage is in the center of our radar, as IIoT-system makers understand that such applications need to store terabytes of data quickly and securely - sometimes in harsh, remote environments," said Scott Phillips, VP, marketing, Virtium. "Our new high-capacity StorFly 2.5'' SSDs are ideally suited for video capture and surveillance in such environments, as well as in countless other industrial applications requiring greater storage.
"These higher capacities complement StorFly drives' other features that make them ideal as embedded SSDs for extreme conditions: proven durability, robust SSD utility software support, the availability of powerful data encryption, and the longest product life for storage. We will continue this capacity expansion across the other form factors we offer."
Buoying the promise of IIoT storage is that analysts project the overall IoT market to grow by leaps and bounds. IDC estimates that it will be a $1.3 trillion market by 2020, with $500 billion of that for IIoT alone.
Combining increased capacities, selection of flash types, and security durability, the StorFly line provides OEMs and system designers with a broad array of industrial-embedded storage options.
