SMART Storage Systems Extends CloudSpeed Product Line With the Introduction of Two New SSDs

SMART Storage Systems, an innovative enterprise solid-state drive (SSD) technology provider, today announced that the company has extended its CloudSpeed product line with the introduction of two new drives, the CloudSpeed 1000 and CloudSpeed 1000E. While leveraging cost-effective 19nm consumer-grade multi-level cell (MLC) Flash and enhancing its base endurance with SMART Storage Systems award winning Guardian Technology Platform, the new CloudSpeed SSDs deliver up to 5x better endurance than competing MLC-based SSDs, resulting in the lowest cost per terabyte written (TBW) in the industry. This enables enterprise customers to better control their storage total cost of ownership (TCO).

"By 2017, SSD prices will fall 35 percent annually, but the reliability of the Flash used will decline nearly 30 percent1," according to a recent Gartner conference presentation. The anticipated drop in Flash reliability poses as a significant challenge in the enterprise market as SSD manufacturers further leverage MLC Flash to meet cost reduction goals, while real-time applications and cloud computing services increase the amount of data being written to drives. Until today, data center managers frequently deployed SSDs leveraging consumer-grade MLC Flash to provide the performance required at a low price-per-gigabyte. However, SSDs that leverage standard, non-endurance enhanced consumer-grade MLC Flash wear-out quickly in enterprise environments. This results in storage TCO skyrocketing as organizations need to replace SSDs multiple times during the warranty period.

"Our CloudSpeed product line gives OEMs and enterprise organizations the best of both worlds; a low acquisition cost and high endurance. This combination results in the absolute lowest TCO over a five year period," stated John Scaramuzzo, president at SMART Storage Systems.
